Fashion and decorating often intersect. Trends are often common between the two. So it only makes sense that something in fashion could inspire a room design. Right? This bag is my first ever Coach bag, and I love it. I have had so many compliments on this bag mainly because of the color. It’s the perfect shade of emerald green.
I may have told you that my in-laws moved all of the furniture to our house and planned to move here to TN. Well their furniture came, but they never did…. and it’s been a year now. That’s okay. Mom-in-Law said I can do whatever I want to the furniture. I hope she was serious, because not only did I re-do her Bamboo Chair , I turned her 80’s mirrored side table in to something wayyyyyy different.
Using the primer and emerald paint from Lowes I got a look that I thought I liked. I used the mirror table tops and traced them onto a thin sheet of wood and then cut the wood out. Safety first, no more fear that Jude will break the glass.
Something was just not right about the paint I used so I turned to Becki’s Memo Board Post on Infarrantly Creative and purchased the same paint she used on her board. I am so glad I did this because although it was the messiest paint on earth and I even sprayed my face with it on accident, IT TURNED OUT AWESOME!!!! (yes I’m screaming)
I’d like to thank all of our Facebook Fan’s for all of the suggestions on how I should paint the table top. I tossed and turned over a design. I was inspired by wallpaper in the new Serena and Lily catalog and this is what came from the inspiration. I think I may still do a checker board on the flip side for game time.
What do you think has this table said bye bye to the 80’s ?
It looks beautiful! But then again, green is my favorite color so it was bound to be a success with me. I hope you continue to love it for a long time to come.
Stopping by from SITS.
Thanks so much Miss Robin! We didn’t have the budget to get new tables so I’m working with what I got. Loving the tables so far!

I had happened across this marvelous creation of yours, while searching ideas for transforming one of my more challenging flea market bargains. I’m glad that I did! I’ve recently made claim to the taller, wider, sofa-sized uncle of your 80’s style table, and I’ve been having a difficult time picturing it as anything more. It’s a nice, solid console table (the exact same gene pool as yours) and I never pass up a quality $5 treaaure when it comes to furniture! There’s an odd quirk to the piece, though. Instead of one inlay for glass/mirror, it has two. Two triangle shaped pieces of dark tinted glass on opposite sides of the top. They’re right at each end of the table, leaving an even more awkward and elongated central area of the table top that’s just as plain as a stick of butter. (Awkward even for the 80’s, so yeah… it’s pretty aodd.) Thanks to your craftiness, I now have a mind full of how to transform it as an entry table for my foyer, or a ~between the back of the couch and window~ sofa table, or the family central dispatch station at the bottom of the stairs, or an added spare kitchen counter bonus, or… In other words, thanks a whole bunch!!

Oh you are so welcome! These were so cute and now have a new home for another family to enjoy. They ended up being to large once we got our new sofa but I still love them! Good luck on your project we’d love to see it! yOu can share it on our Facebook page!
