I have had five tables in this space. You just tweek it til you get it right. I had this table before. The legs kept getting in the way. I don’t even know if it’s right…now. It’s good enough though.
I bought this pedestal table at the thrift store and painted it green and then glazed it. Hated.it. So one afternoon I took a couple of cans of black spray paint to it. Moved it in that night. I swear by Krylon spray paint. I used black satin.
I am turning my dining room into an office/library because in the 2 years we’ve lived here…we’ve only eaten in there once. And that was because I was painting this table. I’ve hosted Christmas with all my family for the past two Christmas’ and we never used the dining area. So…office/library it is! Remember what it looked like when I moved in? Sometimes you just have to live with the house for awhile to figure out how you use it.
I have big plans and want to paint horizontal grey stripes on the walls like Decor Adventures did here. And spray paint a chandy…yellow…amongst some other things. I feel like funkifying everything with turquoise and yellow. I think I’m channeling my inner Edie. What have you tweeked in your home for your family’s best use?
