I finally finished a much needed makeover on our coffee table! My husband Danny had this coffee table is his lounge room when I met him - lucky for him I didn't hold it against him. Once we moved in together I moved it all over the house, bascially trying to hide it. It's just so orange! In fact, I have a whole herd of orange furniture that are crying out for a makeover. One piece at a time I keep telling myself! Here's how it looked to start with, in all its orange glory.
Apart from being orange, the stain was also flaking on the top, and Emma had been practicing writing her name on one corner. When I saw Courtneys' dining table makeover over at The Apprentice Extrovert I knew that was the style I'd go for (and if you don't already follow Court you should - her work is fantastic!). And here it is!
The lounge room is on the list for a makeover, but it's a fair way down. Having this table looking good brightens the room and will tide me over for a while... well a little while at least!
Have you ever worked on a project that made you more and more nervous as you went, because you started to really like it? That was me, with this. I was nervous to keep staining, but I knew I wanted a dark chocolate on top, so I crossed my fingers and kept going. I'm really happy with the result.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
