I've been wanting to somehow update the look of my family room without spending much money. The different tones of the wood furniture just gave it a washed out blah type of look.
I decided to paint 3 pieces of wood furniture black to match the table and chair set I have in my breakfast area.
This table I got from a friend's garage sale for $5.00. The top was a mess, full of stickers and such, but I liked the shape of it. As you see I covered it with tiles, but it still looks kinda sad.
This aquariums been through alot! I bought it used, and it's been through a couple of moves.
This table was probably in the worse shape of anything I owned. It's been around for close to 15 years, and through 8-10 moves! Yes, I've moved more than that (it wares me out just thinking about it.) It's been stained, had a broken leg, and scratched numerous times by my house full of boys.
It's truly amazing what a little sandpaper and a can of spray paint can do!
Not such a great pic of the aquarium, but it looks sooo much better!
This project was super easy considering the result. I spent about $18.00 total, and am in love with my family room. I'd say it was worth it; wouldn't you?
