spray paint and a side table....budget find!

I am obsessed with these little morocco side table from Cottage and Bungalow, but at $989, they are WAY out of my price range. I love it in the blue AND the green, basically the color palette for my entire home. Moving on....
Here is a little more authentic version of a moroccan side table, LOVE the shape, but not the paint detail, just doesn't go with my calm and cool color palette. And, the price is still $219, so too expensive to paint over it.....

I found this little moroccan side table on the clearance shelf at Joann craft and fabric store.....70% off! I had it in the garage to take a pic of the original ugly forest green color....but my husband decided to spray paint the primer on it without telling I have NO BEFORE PICTURE. Bummer. But I couldn't think of a way to complain about that to my husband since he was sweet and started the job for here it is 'after.' Not too bad for $12, right?

I spray painted it with gold and then silver over top of it. It is a hodge podge of metallic but I think I like it. Of course I am NEVER satisfied, so now I want to repaint it white and add nailhead trim to look more like the side table from Cottage and Bungalow. What do you think?

-Never underestimate the power of spray paint!

  1. You know I love a good contrast and some fabulous details on furniture. So, go for it! Paint it white and have some nailhead trim details. It will be so gorgeous.


  2. I'd say live with it this way for a bit and then decide. It looks great now and would look great in white, too. What a find that was! I love your white pouff. I have been looking for an "affordable" one. Any ideas! Your daughter is a doll!

  3. That is a GREAT find! Joann to the rescue again!

  4. Not bad at all for $12!!! I think it looks great. :) I love finding a piece that has potential. Take that, Cottage & Bungalow. ;)
