The Coral Console
I’m reporting live today from underneath a humongous pile of packages. Holy moly craziness. The last week and a half has been more cutting, packing and shipping than I ever thought my hands could possibly take. If you “attended” the Addison’s Wonderland @shopourwonderland sale last week you know that everything sold and it sold fast. I not only sold lots of products but also over a thousand yards of fabric! In total I will have packed and shipped a whopping 223 shipments in less than two weeks. Thank goodness for my sister who I kidnapped, I mean recruited, to come help me. Wow you guys are awesome, thank you! When I decided to take a break from Addison’s Wonderland as I explained in Meet Addison’s Wonderland, I was ever so slightly afraid I would be left wallpapering my home in thousands of yards of extra fabric. As you know, I am capable of doing crazier things but you guys saved the day! Anyways, the point of the story is that things have been crazy and I’m a little late blogging this week.
I am excited to finally be blogging my absolute favorite room in our home this week… the Dining Room! On Friday, I will take you on a full room tour with all of the paint colors, details and sources. Until then, here’s a brief re-cap of a project my daughter and I took on over the summer for a piece of furniture that now has a place in our dining room. And it is fabulous…
Here’s a little peek at the basement in our previous home. I’ll be doing a full home tour of that house in the coming weeks. My style was a little different 8+ years ago when we finished the basement. I purchased this console table at a store in Madison, GA called In High Cotton. I’ve also linked to some similar style console tables at the bottom of this post. It came in this antiqued green finish which I loved then but the colors aren’t so fabulous in our current home.
My sweet daughter Addison absolutely LOVES to help me with anything crafty. I think I have a future little designer on my hands. One day over the summer we got to work on sanding and re-painting this console piece.
We sanded it lightly using a 3M Sanding Sponge taking off just enough of the top coat to hold a new coat of paint. We then painted three coats of Coral Gables by Benjamin Moore which I think is the perfect coral color.
P.S. My daughter only helped for a short time. She was just more excited about posing for pictures than me.
