One upon a time, I found a perfect end table for my living room. Perfect because I love the detail and it provides TONS of awesome storage for toys and blankets. Then I painted her a not so perfect shade of avocado green that made her sort of stand out in my living room like a sore thumb.
So after over a year of staring at the green and hating it, I finally decided to do something about it and repaint it. I was originally going to go yellow, until my husband, almost angrily said, “Why does everything have to be so boring? Can’t we have color?!” I guess to him, in the sea of white and grey that is our home, yellow isn’t bright enough to count as a color. So in an effort to please him, I decided to go with red and I’m so glad I did.
You should probably know that I had a red phase and have been long over it. Like in college I had the red bedroom, bamboo blinds, black furniture-Asian feel thing goin’ on. Red was O-V-E-R for me! I was sure that basically nothing in my house would ever be red again until I found Sherwin Williams Antique Red. It’s actually sort of a rosy red so it’s almost pink, but just red enough that it’s not–make sense? No? Well, just trust me and if you’re looking for a really awesome red, go check it out!
I added some aqua knobs from Hobby Lobby and she’s complete. I’ve been wavering on glazing, and now looking at the pictures, I think my decision is yes on glaze.
