Day16: Quick, Dramatic Side Table Makeover

If you're joining us for the first time today, welcome!  This is day 16 of a 31-day series about how to give a room in your home a brand new look, from top to bottom, completely DIY.  

You'll find links to all the other posts in the series here, if you're interested.

This picture I found from was part of the inspiration for this room makeover:

 Love, love, love that pink side table with the navy blue walls and white trim.  Love it!  I also like the idea of cutting a table in half like that so I set out to find a table we could do that to.  No such luck, but I did find this winner at Hobby Lobby:

It had a great shape and pretty sparkly knobs.  I didn't love the cityscape on the front, and you know I didn't pay $140 for it.  Are you ready for this?!  It cost me  . . . . . . . . . .


Yep, 90% off.  Sold!  I brought it home prepped it for paint by removing the knobs and lightly sanding the glossy surface so the paint would stick better.  I also primed it with a spray primer so that the finish coat would really stick.  Finally it got a couple coats of magenta gloss spray paint { Valspar's Frosty Berry}, and now it looks like a brand new table.

It ended up being more of a bubblegum pink than a raspberry pink, but I still love it.  It's the perfect funky pop of color that we needed on this side of the room.  No, that is not a rock on my daughter's side table.  I mean, it IS, but it's a piece of the new Gilbert LDS temple that is being built so it's a special rock.  My youngest son is the one who collects random plain rocks, not Sis.  Anyway, I'm looking for a basket that will fit underneath the table to hold her library books and magazines.  I'm sure there's a perfect basket out there somewhere.

What do you think of the room so far?  It's really coming together.  I can't wait to show you some of the art we've made for the space tomorrow!  Have a great day, friends.
