Monkey Man and I are currently staying at my mom's "vacation cottage" in South Carolina! It's the perfect vacation house.
Cozy and on the Coast!
Only thing is that since my mom & step dad bought it -
they have been there twice.
and both times left zero time for decorating!
It's become sort of the dump pile for furniture.
Nice furniture. Just not matching! :)
So while I'm here ... I'm doing a little decoraring!
Nothing major -- just some painting, some decorating, etc.
Project #1: TV STAND
My sister has had this TV stand in college.
We really liked the shape - but it just didn't match the other furniture!
No problem -- Paint fixes everything!!
I primed it!
Let me add - PRIMER IS IMPORTANT!
I'll be doing a whole post on the mistakes I made.
Seriously - it was a nightmare but I finally got it right!
Then I used SEVERAL cans of RustOleum's Heirloom White!
The white really freshens up the room!
I also removed the bottom shelf to make room for the bin.
I am also working on throw pillows, the coffee table and some artwork!
I can't wait to show you more!
and just because I LOVE it's new look ---
here's the before:
and the after:
What do you think?
We're enjoying our mini-vacation in Nashville -
but I hope y'all are having a great week!!
