Last month I painted a little table that sits in our main room and holds the water cooler--as well as the binoculars (for watching birds, checking up on cattle, and spying on turkeys) and some other essentials.
It was brown with a black-faux-leathery-plasticy-top thing (I am not sure what the black material was). I didn't dislike it, really; I just wanted a change! I remembered to take a "before" photo after I'd already started painting it!
I used a quart of "attitude grey" I found in our garage.
Kind of a Scandanavian vibe--we're ready for winter now!
