I had a hard time deciding what to do for my next blog post until I was given a set of these dust covered end tables. Pretty boring if you ask me and not normally something I would pick up. Seeing as they were so blah I thought I would jazz them up with some sparkle!

First I painted the entire piece in Vanilla Frosting. Next I painted the top and bottom with Gold Metallic Accent cream. (This took 4 coats to get the look I wanted) once dry i added a coat of Gold Wax. I also painted the silver part of the knobs with Gold metallic Accent cream.

Then I painted the rest of the piece in Vintage cupcake, including the bottom of the drawers. I lightly sanded the Vintage cupcake areas. Finally I decoupaged this fabulous wrapping paper to the front of the drawers and put on a coat of Tough Coat for some extra protection. So there it is! I love how this piece is so versatile in any room. From baby to tween or even for the home office as I have it set up now. I hope I’ve inspired you to add some sparkle to your life!
