Metal Typing Table Makeover!

Hi everyone!  Remember the metal typing table I purchased a few weeks back?  Well I finally painted it.  I decided to go with a robin's egg blue color.  It was in perfect condition.  No scratches or rust. 

I can see it being used for a plant stand.  I little desk you can pull out when you need it.  It can just add a pop of color to a room.  I think the possibilities are endless!  It could be used inside or out.

What do you think?


I will be sharing this at:

Time Travel Thursday at Brambleberry Cottage

  3. Beautiful color. I did one in white once and sit a live fern on it. It looked great. Sold it and now...I want another. :))

  4. How adorable is that! I could kick myself for not buying one for $3.00 at C.C. a few months back. I didn't see the potential (until now on your posting!) Great job. Patty

  5. So pretty! It would be a great addition to a patio (depending on how sturdy the finish is...) Would love it overflowing with plants!

  8. Very nice side table. Love the color you used on it! Thanks for linking it up!

  9. Well, now I know what the little black table I picked up last year was originally used for! It is almost identical to this one and I never really knew what it was in it's previous life.:-)
    You did such a great job transforming this one and I love the color choice. Thanks so much for sharing it with us at Inspiration Friday!

  10. First of all, thanks for linking up to THT.
    I have the same typing table. I just cleaned it up, but your pretty blue one is making me rethink the little typing table. Love it!

  11. You used one of my favorite colors! Thanks so much for sharing - I have an old gray typing table and this inspires my to pull it out of the attic!

  12. That turned out great! Love the transformation
