Painted Console Table

Alternate Title: Pitiful Wall: Take Two


Say hello to the pop of color my living room has desperately been needing!



Yes, I painted my new console table and I'm finally making some progress on my pitiful wall. Last you saw, the large statement wall in my living room looked like this:



Nothing impressive, but better than the IKEA nightstand that's been there for the last year few months. 



OK, back to my newly painted console table - I ordered the table from Wayfair, but didn't love the black and cherry finish. Mostly because I already have a black dining room table and it's a beast to keep dusted and clean. I started by painting a coat of primer on the table. Then I painted two coats of Lagoon by Martha Stewart - I fell in love with the color after seeing a coat rack painted that color in HGTV magazine.  Finally, I rubbed the table down with some Minwax Wipe-On Poly and replaced the knob with a glass one from Hobby Lobby.



I love it, but I still need to hang artwork and style the table. You'll see that in Pitiful Wall: Take Three, but for now, here's my plan of attack:



So, I definitely have a lot more work to do, but I'm lovin' the progress. The blue table is a lot more welcoming than the nightstand that used to be there.

  1. I love it in that color!! The "before" looks so similar to what my console table looked like at first too- black with a dark wood top. Not bad but boring. Your's is anything but boring now- such an awesome pop of color!

  10. It's gorgeous! I have dozens of magazine clips and Pinterest pins of painted furniture but have never actually had the guts to do it...but I can't believe how much more expensive and stunning the table looks now. Can't wait to see the rest of the wall evolve into something awesome!
