table makeover

so a few weeks ago, I mentioned that I painted all weekend....here is my painting station...
here is our coffee table that I repainted. I found it on the side of the road last year, so it was free, but I've never been happy with the way it looks. a little too Pottery-Barn-ish for my taste. So, I sassed it up a bit!! :)

before:


after! 

I bought two turquoise-and-white-beaded knobs from anthropologie for the front, and placed two big red pillows I already had on the inside to add even more color. I painted the fronts of the drawers silver (had that can of silver paint for the stripes on the lampshade leftover) and the rest of the table white. I admit, I shouldn't have spraypainted it, I should've painted it with a brush, but I was just testing it out. Later I may go back and use a brush on the top to give it a smoother finish. It took way too many coats of spraypaint! I did use a primer, too, so that helped, but all in all, my fingers were super sore at the end!!
