Adventures in Spray Paint

I really need to update some things in my house.... but I don't have a lot of money to spend on decor right now. My friends Aubrey & Nicole got me thinking about spray paint. I think Aubrey started it all.... anyway here's the first project that I want to share with you....

Before; this table was brown wood grain pretty 80's. It had a smokey colored glass top. This is place in our house where all of our shoes end up. We come in and kick them under there... it has always been a big mess.


After; I painted it black. I covered the glass with a f aux leather (sounds better than vinyl) I cut the vinyl and used spray adhesive to attach it on the underside. The skirting was no sew! I bought the fabric on clearance at Hobby Lobby - it was only $2 a yard. All I did was cut it and hot glue it on the the inside of the table. Now the shoes are still under there.... but no more mess!!

This project cost me: $5.00 for paint, $3.00 for "Leather", $4.00 for fabric and about 3 hours of time.


Stay tuned! There is more to come!
