In preparation for the holidays I bought a new rug for the living room. It was blue, it matched my cloudy wall. I was in love. Some of the room, the cabinet and the bookcases, looked great with the new rug. Some other things, not so much. Did that stop me from plowing ahead? Of course not. I was determined to make the room look presentable for the holidays, as best I could.
Like I said, some of the furniture looked out of place. Now I am on a budget so buying a new coffee table was not in the foreseeable future. But I figured I could always paint that table that looked oh so dark and gloomy and make it fit in just a bit better. This is how I went about reinventing my old coffee table with paint to fit in with the rest of the room.

But let's back track for a minute. This table has been with us since my boys lived here. I had originally covered it with a black vinyl contact paper because... well you can read all about that story here. And you see why it worked before in that setting.
The plan was to paint the whole table and hide the darkness of the wood and the black vinyl. Because this was no longer the boy's bachelor pad. It was my living room and it had to reflect my taste. Mainly my love of blue and warm and cozy things.
