I was going to merge the two words in the title into a cute pun like “PINspiration” or something, but then it just reminded me too much of “perspiration” which is not cute or fun at all. So I went the boring route. Sorry, guys.
Anyway, here’s what I’ve been loving on Pinterest this past week.
Isn’t this stair step end table fabulous? It would take a certain decor style to pull off, but I like it!
This blog post about printing oversized prints at Staples for surprisingly cheap.
They’re called engineering prints and they only come in black and white, but I think it could be fun. I considered getting one for above my couch, but I’ve found a new art project idea for that. More to come later 🙂
Everyone remember this?
It finally became this:
Boom chicka wow wow, right? Okay, maybe that’s too much excitement for an end table. But I love it. The SassCat loves it, too.
I think she likes the sassy pop of green inside the drawer that matches the legs.
I’m on the fence about painting the knob green. I tried to remove the knob, but it’s an old table and I couldn’t get the knob unscrewed. So, leave it au natural or paint it green? Vote in the comments!
PS – My walls look sort of olive in some of those photos. They’re not. The middle pic (with SassCat) is more true to life.
Sigh. Turns out painting an end table is a bit more work than I expected. Here’s the table in all its pre-painted glory.
I did a quick once-over with some fine grit sandpaper and then primed the table today.
I felt pretty relieved after I primed it. I had been having last minute second thoughts of “Oh no, what am I doing? Am I about to ruin this end table? It has such good bones.” But priming it allowed me to visualize what it will look like once I paint it white. I think it will be cute.
So the plan is white with a green top, green dip-dyed legs (who knew that was coming? lol), and the inside of the drawer will be green. Theoretically, the green will match the curtains in my bedroom, but….
You guys, I just don’t know about that shade of green. I matched the paint chip to my curtains…but this seems so…fluorescent? neon?
I’m hoping once I paint the rest white and put it in my room it will look right.
