As I mentioned in last week’s post (on how to make Craftsman Style Mouldings), I have been working on making over my den. I installed the mouldings and painted it a dark reddish-purple paint color. I also switched out the too-large desk I used to have in there for a library table that was in the living room. It’s not as long as the desk so it fits in the room better, and folds out so I can use it as a dining table when I have company. (In my tiny house, there isn’t really space for a true dining room…so my den has to do double-duty).
The table has a mahogany veneer that was too similar to the wall color so it needed to be painted. It also needed a little “updating” to make it feel a little more current.
The Inspiration – via lostandfounddecor.com
When I read Melanie from lostandfounddecor.com’s night stand makeover, I knew I had my inspiration.
Then I watched Gail Rogers on You Tube describe how to use Cottage Paint’s new metallic product called Urban Paint and I felt confident I knew how to accomplish the result I wanted.
And here’s a sneak peak of the “after”. What do you think? I am more than pleased.
