Ispiration to Perspiration

I have always loved silver leafed furniture, but didn't like the sticker-shock from seeing the prices being asked.
Paying huge prices is NEVER my style.

You see it sitting there . . .against the back wall . . . all shiny . . .BLING . . . I had to have one. Then I found these . . 

and the finish on this Ballard Designs lamp . . .YUMMO

 Then there was this . . .

I had this little dressing table, bought about 8 years ago from ABC Distributing for about $50.
You can just see it in the corner :)

With a little of these two friends . . .
 I got this! I LOVE it and what's better, my young-adult daughter LOVES it! What say you?
(ignore the lamp cord, wall color and stuff in general  . . . room is still in transition)

  1. Great new look on that piece. Thanks so much for joining the party. Would love for you to add a link to my party.

  2. This turned out so beautiful! Love the price too :)

  3. Hi Angela-

    Thanks for sending me the link. I have never used Valspar spray paint. I didn't even know they had metallic colors. Your table came out beautifully, I can see why you and your daughter love it so much.
    I have those pesky lamp cords in my photos also - I cheat and use Photoshop Elements to erase them :)
    My best- Diane

  4. Wonderfully done! The vintage faux metal finish is growing on me, you did a great job!
