First let me say that it is very hard to get photos in here, because the space is small and narrow.
Here's how the table looked last week...
This is another of the Valspar paint samples. It is Golden Chime. Don't know where that name came from, but I guess they run out of names to call paint colors!
I thought about painting a thin red stripe down both sides of the leaves, but decided against it. There is more than enough color there on that wall!
I painted these little shelves the gold also, a $3 find at my favorite antique mall in Jenks. I brought them from the other place. They were red. There is enough red going on. You can see the bits of gold I got on the wall I will have to fix. Yes, I painted them right there!
I put painter's tape all around them and just started painting. Oops, I see I forgot to remove the blue tape above the top shelf. See...
For all of you who have asked: Where is the coffee? It has always been right here. Just on different pieces of furniture. It was originally on the hand-me-down kitchen cart I rescued.
That is now in the kitchen serving as a cooking station, and it too is the gold shade. With the idea-at-the-last-moment to paint the drawer pulls red.
(There have been some little additions here in the kitchen, and I'll show you that later. Nothing major. Just little things I added.)
The potting bench I painted red about a month ago. And tried my best to use it in the kitchen. But just could not visually get it to work.
Frustrated, I left it in there nearly a week trying to think of ways to make it work for me, but eventually just brought it in here and switched it out for the kitchen cart. It's now living life as a coffee bar.
I have tried my best to get a better photo of the potting bench, but this is simply the best I can do within this small area.
So nothing earth-shattering here. I may or may not leave the white lamp. I want lamp light in here, but just am not sure this is the lamp I want. It is only 60 watts when, if I do crafts here, I'd want at least 100 watts.
Here you can see outside to the patio. I know, you hate the vertical blinds. So do I. But in this heat, I really need them.
Considering I paid $10 for the now golden table, I am quite happy with it.
The red chairs are so comfy as dining room chairs. I bought them while still living in Texas at Pier 1.
They are indoor/outdoor chairs, which tends to be cheaper on the pocketbook. Plus you're able to utilize them in or outside. I think they were about $59 a piece. Add a nice cushion and you will want to linger here awhile.
