Quick Lighted Fiberglass End Table Refresh

Mel and I purchased this piece a while back. When we purchased it, we knew we wanted to liven it up by changing its color.

I am not sure if this is a Frankenstein creation or if it is actually made by someone notable. There are no maker marks and I couldn’t find any info online.

It came apart very easily and painted even easier. I love the yellow and it really adds a nice pop of color.

I love the way it looks with everything. I might see if I can find a green or blue lightbulb to really shake things up!

I think colored transparent glass might look better on here than this sort of glass. I think that kind of glass would add more drama to the lighting.

On to the next project!

We are excited to announce the completion of our Chromcraft set. Bill and John from B&T Upholstery did a fantastic job and we couldn’t be happier. Here are a couple of earlier posts where I wrote about this sets transformation (update 1update 2).

We were a little nervous about our fabric choice but now that the set is finished we really dig it.

The accessories look soo good with this set.

John did a fantastic job keeping the pattern lined up.

Even the Witco’s look great with it!

Of course you need more decorative glass.

I am surprised how comfortable these are. Bill used heavy duty foam to give the cushions more durability.

This will be a great area to hang out in and watch TV. I love decorating in a different style and era than I am accustom to.

I really dig the blue/green color combo of the lamps.

I am almost 6ft tall and I can actually lay down on this couch and fit!
