Silver Console and a Little Halloween

After posting about my current love of silver furniture I thought it would be fun to try and create a piece for my house. Luckily, I had this console table that I got off Craigslist several years ago. I figured since I got it cheap if it didn't turn out it wouldn't be a big lose. I emptied out the drawers and carried it outside.

One coat of primer and two coats of satin nickle spray paint that I already had later...

It turned out really cute, and it was super easy to paint! I do think it would look better against a darker wall, so it may be relocated in the future. But for now it's something new.

I figured the end of September wasn't too early to get my Halloween stuff out, and it certainly provided the right motivation for my girls to clean up some toys! Besides with three months of holidays I have that much longer to find just the perfect things to adorn my new silver console.


  1. I love it!!!! Don't you adore silver and gold leaf? They make life that much more beautiful!


  2. LOVE the silver! How inspiring! Great job!
