Summer Rental Redesign: Coffee Table Before/After

When we bought the coffee table and end tables, I really didn't like them.  I bought them out of desperation.  I wasn't finding anything that would work within my budget.  I was worried if I passed up this set for $30 I would spend the rest of the summer searching.  Here is a before shot:


Can I just say I LOVE them now?  We used a couple of cans of Rust Oleum's Navajo White and now they look brand new.  Maybe even a little Pottery Barn-esque.  Here is the after:


And here's a little sneak peek of some more of the room.  As you can see, I still don't have pictures in the frames just yet, but the room is closer to being done!
I bought the blue decorative paper from Joann's on sale for $1 each and the vases were also $1.   I made the plain blue pillow cover for the existing couch cushion and the Liberty of London pillow was $9 clearance at Target.  I plan on taking it home with me at the end of the summer!

I love the coffee table it turned out so great! You have so much talent. What a fun thing to do. I seriously want to copy you and do this next summer, but I don't know if I have that motivation or skill!!! Love what you've done and love that lamp!

Hey Bri, I dont know if you even remember me.....you were my daughters "intern teacher" so to speak in 4th grade at Shiremanstown...Alexa Lorance. Anyway, Jessica also went to school with my older daughter Alyssa at MASH before we moved to AZ 2 years ago. I found your blog from Jessica's Facebook. You are just amazing! I love your creativity, you have such talent. And, you have the most beautiful baby! We all just love looking at her pictures, you all look so happy!
