I’ve had this table for like a million years (that’s 5 years in Laurie’s time) and it was honestly going to be a transitional piece of furniture (you know I’m going to buy this until I find what I really want).
The table used to be near the door in our old house sorta as a makeshift foyer area. When we moved I didn’t know where to put the table. It first started off in our laundry room (we remodeled and it didn’t work anymore) then I put it on an empty wall in our kitchen. It wasn’t working.
Sooooo Drew and I were having brunch at one of our favorite restaurant’s in Indianapolis and they had recently remodeled so obviously I was checking out the new space when a wall of white plates caught my eye. Now obviously plates on the wall isn’t anything new but at that moment I thought hey I want a wall of plates like that! (Then it came to me what to do with that awkward space, see the space spoke to me!) Inspiration is everywhere so keep your eye open.
I’m obsessed with painting my kitchen cabinets black so painting the table black was an easy choice but first up the plates.
I bought the plates over a month’s time when I’d go shopping at Target. They weren’t too much but spreading the cost over time keeps the budget in check and lets me work on other things at the same time. (ODD, obsessive decorating disorder!)
Call me lazy or call me brillant but there wasn’t much work involved in painting the console. I used a primer and paint in one, I simply sanded the table down just a little and then painted 2 coats. I picked up the “J” knob at Hobby Lobby, go figure it was 50% off, the tassle, well I have no idea where I bought it, I just pulled it off another piece of furniture and put it here. It’s become the source of amusement at our house because our dog Lilly, can hit the tassle with her tail and make it spin and she shows this trick off a few times a day.
The next part was the fun part (for me) dressing the table. I simply gathered some of my silver pieces and added a plant (adding green and something living always works.)
So there you have it! I guess I’ll hang on to my piece of transitional furniture for a little bit longer!!
