Have you found the perfect color pairing to go with your next furniture project? Sandra from Charmed Crown Blog scored an amazing deal on this changing table which she turned into a beverage cart with Happy Hour and Tough Coat!

Who’d have thought that a color could be so motivating and fun!

The funny thing is that this pairing of paint and furniture came together unexpectedly and yet coincidentally went together perfectly! To be honest what pushed me to combine this piece with this color even more so was the inspiration that came from {here}. I’ve been obsessed with Christy’s beverage station forever and when I saw this pretty color from Country Chic Paint, I couldn’t pass it up.

We’ve been working on creating a sort of sanctuary for our outdoor patio as we love spending time outdoors. We’re only scratching the surface by making cosmetic upgrades. As much as I’d like to tear it all up and start over, that’s just not in the budget, but much more on that very soon.

For now though, I have to tell you, finding good bone furniture pieces is my favorite.

Since the beginning of spring I had been searching Craigslist for a piece that would serve as an beverage station/potting table for our outdoor space. I found throughout the web that quite a few changing tables have been turned beverage stations or bar carts if you will, and it inspired me to look further than the norm.

Here is a picture of what it looked like before. I meant to take a photo of it myself, but I didn’t so I here’s one I managed to track down from Pottery Barn.

SOURCE ‘POTTERY BARN’

I knew it was a bit far fetched, but I kept searching and finally found this piece. Not only did it have good bones, but it is sturdy and a steal at only $20! It’s an old Pottery Barn changing table which they no longer carry. Hello…steal right? It was in a whole lot more rough shape than that photo though, I have to say.

This season’s Country Chic Paint 2017 Spring/Summer limited edition colors are to die for and their color Happy Hour couldn’t have been more suitable for this piece! I encourage you to buy this color before its gone. I did not sand this piece at all, just cleaned it, painted it with Country Chic Paint’s Happy Hour, and sealed it with Tough Coat because it’s going to be put through some good use and although it will be protected from brutal weather, which we hardly get, I must say I won’t mind the weathering look of it as it ages.

Tell me is it not the best combination of color and furniture piece?

We did drive 20 something minutes to pick this piece up, but it was oh sooooo worth it!!! I see us using this piece for many outdoor BBQ’s, dinners, and gatherings in the future and even for some potting of my favorite plants for the season.

One specifically we will have to have to celebrate the changes in this space! Any reason for Summer food and drinks!
