I’ve been looking for a round side table to place next to the sofa in our living room. Originally, I wanted something gold. I’m totally on a gold kick right now.
I found this hot pink side table at Target in with the dorm room furniture for $20 and figured I could spray paint it. Although that hot pink would look downright fresh in the right space.
The top was just screwed onto the wire base so I removed it instead of taping anything off.
Easy. I took the wire base outside to spray it. Once I got it out there, I changed my mind on the color last minute.
I went bright red instead. I’m so happy I did!
The shot of color is a welcome surprise in our mostly neutral living room. The table itself is great for holding drinks on this side of the sofa. The slatted coffee table isn’t really conducive to resting glasses on. At the opposite end of the coffee table, I have a little slab of marble to rest drinks on but we’ve never had a proper place for drinks on this side of the sofa. FYI – We only allow water in the living room – unless the kids are in bed.
I’ve had the notion to do something to the plain white tabletop but I haven’t come up with anything yet. Why can’t I leave things alone?!
Lil’ red table, you are so cute. Thanks for letting me have my way with you.
