Side Table Re-Do

Yesterday I showed you my living room space and how over time the layers of design have really begun to transform the space.

I thought today I would share with you the side tables that ones were black and now shine like gold!

I bought two of these from Target knowing that they were the perfect "X-Form" shape I had been looking for. However not only was the black base a problem but also the black glass...GROSS!
So I decided to take out the glass and spray paint the base a nice brass color. While for the glass I went down to a local glass company and had them custom cut two clear pieces for me.
I could not stop staring at them once I put the tables together. I would go in another room and come out and go "Oh I just love it!" That is when you know your money and time was well spent when you use the L word.

Here is once the side table was complete adorned with my favorite picture frame and a new favorite of mind the brass bowl from Nate Berkus's Target collection.

But here it is again my living room with the side tables on either side of the sofa.

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Your living room is gorgeous I LOVE the colors you used, do you mind if I ask what you used to paint the tables? I have been thinking of doing the same thing with a black metal glass coffee table. Your sofa and floral chair are to die for!

  2. I used Krylon Metallic Spray Paint in Gold. I had to sand down the metal first and scuff it up. Then I applied 2 to 3 coats evenly. Haven't seen any chipping yet. But they don't get fooled with as much as a coffee table might. Hope that helps. Loved looking at your website too! I am thinking about doing a new molding project myself!
