Home Improvement Project - Silver Table

Before

After

Every now and then I decide to try to turn something old or ugly into something new and improved. My husband and I decided to take this side table, which I really didn't like, and make it into something that we would want to have in our home. I am not sure if the before picture shows it, but the table top is really just pressed wood. It had some sort of faux wood (picture?) on top of the pressed wood. The legs of the table were solid and I saw some potential in the shape of the table. We painted it with Krylon Brushed Metallic paint. The color is Satin Nickel. Then we used a clear gloss topcoat. The handle was shiny brass, but we painted it black. I found the lamp on sale at Target for 50% off. I love a bargain:)

Please forgive the missing baseboard molding. Our living room is a long work in progress;)
