Now, don't judge me...I bought one. For my sweet mother-in-law who wanted one for a small space next to a new chair. I thought if I found one with some character, we could paint it and make it look decent enough. But as it turns out, the diameter of the table was too big. It sat and sat in my garage...ugly as it was until I could'nt take it anymore. I'd spent enough on it that I didn't want to just re-gift it to GW unless I tried to do something with it. Picture a dark, solid wood lamp with a table attached and brass accents.
I painted it a glossy white
Silver-leafed the details with Rub-n-Buff
Found a thrift store shade that was stained but had great texture...so I spray painted it silver
And here she is all put together
So, what do you think...glam or grandma? You won't offend me either way...I know she looks better than she did for sure!
