I know that I painted my thrift store table white to add to my living room and I must say, I am happy that I did. I prefer it white. However, it is back in my family room because the other day I purchased a new piece for my home. This is a rarity and I must say, what with my new Safavieh rug and now my new ottoman/coffee table, I have gone on quite a spending spree. It is just that I saw it there – in HomeGoods – and it was such a great price ($150)…I just didn’t want to leave it.
Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. I fell ill with a super bad cold that is now making its way through our house. Sophie is in bed with it today and home from school. Anyway, before I came down with this nasty bug, I went out to the thrift store and I have been waiting to share my find with you all – my “new” lamp.
Vintage White Coffee Table Before and After
I mentioned yesterday how after purchasing a new rug, I was looking to find a suitable new coffee table for our living room. After searching high and low, I realized that I actually already owned the perfect table – my thrift store coffee table that I had purchased years ago. Originally, I had painted it in Annie Sloan Provence. A fresh coat of General Finishes Antique White has given it a new look!
My Vintage Coffee Table Will Do! Shopping My Own Home
I went to a few thrift stores today and also back to Home Goods to try and find a round, glass, coffee table for my living room. After my rug purchase, I’m in the midst of changing it all around (surprise!) and want a new table for the room. However, I had no luck today in either the thrift stores or Home Goods.
I was at one of my favorite stores, HomeGoods the other day when I spotted this gorgeous rug.
I have been looking for awhile to purchase a new, larger rug for the living room and boom, there it was. I had to buy it because you all know that if you leave anything for ten minutes at HomeGoods, it will be gone! I rarely splurge and I knew that if I left this one behind, I would regret it. I also knew that if I changed my mind and guilt overcame me, I could always return it. That always makes it easier to justify!
Thrifty Home for the Holidays I spent time last week breaking out the Christmas decorations and getting our house ready for Ella’s big birthday party. Now that it’s over and I can take a breath, I took a few pics to share with you! After the big Christmas tree debate, we decided to put my little new white tree in the living room and the original green, twirling tree in our family room. Peace 🙂
My Home’s Color Scheme I understand that my posts may be slightly tiring at this point as they are all on my own home but that is what I’ve been up to lately! Today I spent the day repainting my hallway and I had my kitchen ceiling patched and painted. I feel that my taste has changed from my white and light cottage vibe that I have had for years to a more sophisticated and deeper color palette.
Painted Kitchen Reveal I’m finally done with my kitchen – just in time for Thanksgiving! I had already painted the bottom cabinets in General Finishes Milk Paint in the color Millstone. I decided to paint the top cabinets in their Antique White to lighten them up and give a bit of contrast. I painted the top walls in Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige and under the chair rail in in Benjamin Moore Cloud White. I also touched up the trim. I’m having the ceiling patched and painted on Monday and then the whole room will be complete!
My dining room is done in Sherwin Williams Rainstorm! Oh my, it was quite a job. I ended up painting underneath the chair rail in white. I had (of course) first painted it in the deep blue and it took three coats to cover it again in white. Talk about making more work for myself! I also repainted the trim while I was at it. The white is Benjamin Moore Cloud White, which is the trim color throughout my house. I again had both paint colors matched at Home Depot in their Behr paint and primer.
I am continuing my painting rampage and am now on to my dining room. I already painted my foyer in Sherwin Williams Poised Taupe, the living room in SW Accessible Beige and now I am using Sherwin Williams Rainstorm for my dining room. This color is way out of my comfort zone! It is a deep moody indigo blue – very dark for me.
