In my new office I have two grey chairs in front of my desk, which needed a small table to place in between them. I knew I wanted it to be metal and I wanted it to be silver to make the rest of the décor I made. I looked at several discount stores, but couldn’t find anything I liked within in my price range. On the verge of giving up I went to the furniture area of the craft store and found this bright lime green table that had a wonderful pattern, but didn’t care for the color. In the end I couldn’t pass up the $15 deal and took it home. I also bought a small square table to place between my two blue chairs in our living room. I purchased a high quality silver spray paint and got to work. I sprayed each table with a light coat of paint and waited it to try. I carefully made sure to get into all of the joints because that lime green would have been an ugly contrast to the silver. Once dry I repeated the process until I got the look I wanted. Now my co-workers have a pretty place to put their coffee or notebooks when they are in my office. Just remember not to pass up a great deal because of an ugly color and it is something that can be fixed with a can of spray paint and an afternoon of your time!
