As we woke up to the first autumnal mists this morning it seems appropriate to join Melissa at The Inspired Room‘s ‘Fall Nesting Party’ where you can share how you change your home for the new Autumn season. My first post is the makeover of a sad little table I’ve had sitting in the corner of the dining room for the last 10 years. When we moved into our first house it was sitting out in our lean to it’d been left by the last owner as she didn’t want it. I was delighted with it, it’s a lovely shape but I’ve never been too sure what to do with it.
As you can see it needed some love, and I decided to take the plunge and paint it. I did think about painting it white or cream, but I just felt it might look a bit out of place and too glaring, so I settled on Farrow & Ball ‘Lamp Room Grey’ which is the colour of the sky here in the autumn. As the table isn’t that big a tester pot for £3.00 covered it perfectly.
I did two coats of paint and as the paint dries pretty quickly the table was done in under and hour. Here’s the finished table – sorry not very autumnal but there’s not a lot in the shops here in the UK yet.
What do you think? I’m really pleased with it and Paul likes it so much he’s letting me paint our bookcases in the same colour! I just need to finish the kitchen first 🙂
