before and after :: my tv table

| before and after makeovers | DIY projects

hi dearies!  friday already, huh?  did you have a good week?  i sure enjoyed being back and think that i'm finally getting back in the swing of things!  i'm off to charlotte for a wedding tomorrow then meeting up with the hub for a night together in charleston. i haven't been in years, so i'm really excited!  and, i have a confession to make.  i finally broke and though i had tried to not get involved, it happened.  last week i started reading twilight.  yup, that's right, and now i can't sleep because i can't get my head out of these books!  i'm on page 176 of eclipse already, and my obsession is in full gear.  yes, i feel like i'm back in highschool, but boy am i loving it! ;)

onto what's we're really going to talk about today, a before and after project!

believe it or not, in our last house i used this table as-is for about a year.  under the tv it sat in it's raw state.  but when we moved, i got the motivation to fix 'er up!

my tv table after!

now, isn't that better?  here's what i did:

i painted all the wood with a high gloss ultra white paint (standard at the hardwood store) with a brush, and let it fully dry. then i used one of my favorite gadgets from ikea, attached it to the insides of the table and then clipped the curtain to it (fabric is also from ikea).  within an afternoon, this gal had made a complete turn around!


  • i love love love it, a coat of paint works wonders, along with a fun fabric print!

  • Have a lovely time in Charlotte and Charleston. It’s so pretty this time of year! And don’t feel bad about Twilight…it made me feel like I was back in high school, too, in the best way. The table looks great, by the way.

    • thanks girls! happy weekend!

  • Twilight…LOVED those books and devoured them as well…even my hubby read them all…he doesn’t like me to tell people that :)

    have fun at the wedding – yay for getting to get dressed up!!

    love the table’s little curtain!

  • I stumbled across your site and I’m glad I did.

    However, for this makeover, where is the “after” pic? Would love to see what you did to turn this piece around.


    • hi monique! hm, not sure what happened here! thanks for bringing it to my attention- the ‘after’ photo should be visible now! xo, bonnie :)
