Coffee Table Makeover- Part One

I mentioned in my DIY Ice bucket planter post that our living room was being over taken by the color brown. Brown rug, brown carpet, brown entertainment center, brown chair, & brown coffee table… It was getting bad. So I started operation illimiate brown. Now, of course there will still be some brown, I love neutrals so it’s bound to happen. The one thing I did need to change though was one of the large pieces of furniture. It was either the our DIY entertainment center or the coffee table & I ended up choosing the coffee table. I did ask a while ago on Instagram if I should paint the coffee table & EVERYONE said no, so I’m sure there will be some people who will not agree with me, but it had to happen for my sanity folks! The same week I painted the coffee table, I had also painted our stool in our dining room from Ikea grain sack from miss mustard seed’s paint line & I really liked the color, so I chose to paint our coffee table grain sack as well. & I think I like it. I didn’t take full photos of the table because I am waiting on the new hardware to get delivered, but for now here is a little sneak peek of the newly painted coffee table…

I was a little hesitant of using this color in our living room because I wasn’t sure if the grain sack gray/white color would just look like dirty against the white furniture. But so far so good, I’m actually loving the change. In case you missed it here is the grain sack milk paint on the Ikea stool in our dining room

You can see the full stool makeover {here}. It’s funny, because I feel like the color on the stool & the coffee table are a little different, but they are both perfect for the piece that it’s on if that makes any sense. Milk paint is a crazy thing to work with & requires patience, but the finish is wonderful! If you are wondering, I ordered my milk paint through Refunk My Junk {here}. I will be giving the full coffee table makeover as soon as the hardware comes in, & I can’t wait to show it to you in the full living room space with the updated coffee table…

So, what do you think of the table so far? I’m thinking of adding some different baskets below, & of course new hardware, but I’m happy so far. Thank goodness we got rid of some major brown in the living room! Have you used milk paint before? Did you like it? I will give a full review and tutorial later on the milk paint, but I feel like I need to use it a little while longer before I give my honest thoughts to you. Be sure to find me on Instagram & facebook & leave your thoughts below. I hope you are having a great day & that you do something creative today… talk to you later! xx

    I have almost the same exact coffee table and ironically the same problem that you had! Our living room is ALL brown- the couches, floors, coffee tables, end tables, built ins etc. All. Of. It. I found your project in Pinterest! Thank you for sharing! I’m inspired! You helped to add a little more confidence for me to do it!!

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
