On the weekend I decided to paint this little side table that I had in the garage.

I didn’t’ take a photo of what it looked like before but it was white and chipped and had the shabby chic look.




I really love the colour yellow and picked up some spray paint from Bunnings.  It was hard to judge the shade of yellow by the lids so I bought two popular brands.




I tried the table out in my bedroom as a bedside table.  The bright yellow really pops against the grey tones.




It also looked really cute as a side table in my living room.  I styled it with hot pink, two of my favourite colour combos.




It’s amazing how a coat of paint can transform what you hated before into a new funky piece of furniture.

I used the Rust-oleum as I didn’t need to use a primer or base coat.  This can did both.  It spayed on very easily and had great coverage.  I did two coats to achieve the gloss finish.  Now I cannot wait to give other pieces of furniture a new lease of life.

Have you done a weekend project lately, I’d love to hear about it?
