Glossy lipstick-red side table

Remember these red kitchen stools I was crushing on?  Well, if you've been reading a while, you know those didn't quite work out.  However, I was still inspired by red.  In fact, I decided to spice up my bedroom with it!  Here's the result:


As you can see, this side of the room left a bit to be desired.


In addition to hanging ceiling medallions on the wall as art, I thought we needed a bit of color too.  So I turned this boring black side table into something much more exciting!



Here's the before:


And here are a few views of the after, with different vignettes atop the table:



 
 
This was a simple paint project, with no clean-up!  I sprayed a couple coats of gray spray primer, then several coats of Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover spray paint in Gloss Apple Red.  I plan to use a gloss spray poly to protect the finish, but I was too eager to take photos to get that done yet.


Did you spy something else in the "after" shots?  I thought I'd give you a sneak peek!

    4. Oh goodness that red is amazing! Did you try the top right vignette with the elephant instead of the little box? I love that top right combo but that elephant is too cute... has to go somewhere.

    21. Love all that color added. Funny I am not using the same red stools anymore either. Just not the right red for me. Thanks for sharing at Wow.

    22. I am totally a RED girl so I love your table. I have never done glossy red, but I sure love yours.

    23. Is there a reason you used Rustoleum on this project, but not on the other desk/ dresser/ nightstand? marisayalonso@yahoo.com

      1. Good question, Marisa. I used spray paint on the table because it was a small project, so it was cheaper and simpler than buying paint then thinning it for my paint sprayer, then cleaning up the paint sprayer at the end.
