100th post in Glossy black

Turns out my last post was lucky 100 and I missed it! I guess that I’d been anticipating it for so long the moment just escaped me. To commemorate this event I’d like to get back to the roots of this blog with a before and after reveal!

Behold the white coffee table, before any work was done.

Renewed with a slippery black sheen.

I buffed the tips of the legs gold and applied countless coats of black paint with a foam roller, all the while perfecting my smooth roll, I’m on a mission to accomplish. Then, I applied two wonderful coats of an oil based polyurethane gloss. That’s our living room, you see in the background.

I like how the table top really reflects the light and it’s modern feel too. You can see our new Vera pillow has found a home. Have you got any pics of updated furnishings you’d like to share? Send me a pic. I love to see your creativity.

Tonight, I’m off to Grand Performances to see Caravan Palace, a popular Parisian group…


more Metamorphosis pics Monday!

    OOO, I like 🙂 I also love this group that you are seeing tonight, I’ve never heard of them, but they seem amazing. Have fun!

  2. I actually liked the table as it was (white and a little worn). But the black, glossy sleek make-over is quite lovely (very cool addition of the gold). And it looks great with your sofa.

    As for the Caravan Palace – what a cool group. Love the vibe. Hope you had fun!

    Thanks for the feedback!
    I’m not sure if you would have been so into the white in person…the pic always seems to make it look way cooler than it was!
    The band rocked me on Friday in a way, unlike any other!!!
