Vintage Tv Stand: Before & After

For a long time I felt like our vintage tv stand needed a fresh face lift but I didn't know what  exactly to do to it. When I figured out that what I wasn't liking about it was that it blended in too perfectly with our honey hardwood floors, I knew we needed to paint it. Something light and bright would make it pop and stand out, so to the paint store we went. We chose a seafoam green/mint paint color, and were told we didn't even need a primer because we were painting on light wood. As much as I wanted to get a brush and get to work, I'm pregnant and can't be around paint fumes, so mister got the paint job duty while I sat back at a distance and watched helplessly. Our vintage piece transformed before our eyes and after just two coats, we're both loving it even more than we did before. It's so perfect in fact, that it looks like it came in this color, like it was meant to be this way all along. This little project has gotten G looking around the house to see what other pieces of furniture and walls he can paint. Not complaining!
