Well not a real horse but after not blogging for a week…..I need a swift kick in the ass right now.

I trust everyone had a relaxing week with family and friends.  

A few weeks ago I posted about a coffee table that I had painted for a client.

 And the top

We could have bought a new one but this was a good size…solid wood and anytime I can recycle in a project I'm game.  

Leaves funds for something else.

We also had these painted.
Good size and nice for storage.

Plus I saw this while looking for end tables and was inspired!

The cube in the top right hand corner.

Easy Button.

Back to the coffee table.

I used these painted walls I saw at the Southern Living Showhouse down in Senoia, Georgia for my inspiration.

Now you are going to ask me the colors we used [because you already have]…..I THINK it was Clay Beige and Manchester Tan [Benjamin Moore].

I wanted the coffee table to look "more than just a painted table".

Here they are side by side so you can see the difference.  The cube was painted just an off white with a very soft glaze.

I pulled some "beige" colors from the pillow fabric.

Here is a close up.

I am really pleased with how it came out. 

Allrighty then….all is good.  This was easy…I am back in the game.

They came out amazing! I love the tone on tone look of the table. It is so amazing what you can do with dated dark furniture and lighter paint colors. It's like night and day. Beautiful work Sherry!

Love that table and honestly never would have thought to do a pattern like that. It turned out beautifully!

Julie said...

I love that wall paint job!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

I love that tabletop detail!

Fran said...

Gosh - love it - the colors are fantastic. I want to see more (the whole room with the check wall)!! Great job and thanks for posting the colors you used!

So great! Really pretty.

I have actually managed to finish reading your archive in this past month. I just devoured it. I haven't been this excited about a blog since I discovered Cote de Texas three years ago. You are just super funny, talented, and you know how to work nuetrals! I am a big fan. Thanks for mentioning how you pulled the "beige" for the table out of the pillow fabric. These little clues help. I am so in love with neutral rooms but pulling it off in my own home...I am still figuring it out...why is interior design so hard? Who knew?

I just love that you used what your client already had--such a beautiful update.

Wow, those tables are fabulous! I recently used that World Market coffee table for a client as well. Didn't paint it though. Both tables look great!

René said...

You have such great vision! The whole room looks perfect!

Kim said...

Oh I forgot all about that wall treatment ... way to go ... looks great on the table and I would still love it on a wall! xo

Wow I LOVE the way it looks...fabulous job! Hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving!

Cassie Bustamante said...

it looks great painted!!! i have the same one and now my wheels are turning- it's in the playroom so sort of also known as the neglected room where the kids make messes constantly so why should i care room.

Cindy Albert said...

I'm always amazed at how straight you keep your lines when you are painting.

Please help me help a friend. She just published her first novel and she is offering a give-away. For details please visit me at

Thank you so much!

I love that dang checkered table! Much easier and quicker than walls too. Sha-smartypants!! said...

Miracle worker my friend!

self storage in Mulgrave said...

I'm happy with my choice, and strongly recommend them to anyone who is looking for one. This storage place rocks! I only rented for a month and they were totally professional and accommodating.
