    Hey girl! Thanks for featuring my coffee table! I’m actually in the process of changing it up again. I think I’m going to paint the base white to match my board and batten walls.

    It’s amazing what some paint can do to anything. I’m a strong believer that the cheapest way to decorate is with paint regardless of what you are putting it on. Love every piece up there. Can’t wait to dig out all the pieces that I have been wanting to paint. You’ve inspired me.
