Plum Perfect Friday - Sitting Room Switch Up!

A new year has begun and I am itchin' to revise the living room now! I began my morning by re-arranging some of the furniture and got some painting projects underway.

I have had this old blue suitcase for several years and somewhere, saw the idea to paint it white. I love the look of stacking things and it will be so versatile for other uses in the future, but this is what I came up with today.

I think I will need to collect some more!

In December I found this little side table at a garage sale for $5, and think it will be a nice addition to the room, after I give it a new finish.

So, I got busy sanding, then grabbed the Kilz and went to work painting.

I am going to let it cure over night, put the top coat on, do some more sanding, then use some antiquing glaze. I'll let you know how it turns out, so ya gotta check back!

I need another perspective though...the blue cube on the right is what was there before...what's your vote? Paint that one white and keep that one in it's place, or use the new table?

I appreciate all of your comments and opinions! Have a fabulous weekend!

I think the cube needs to stay because you had a table right next to it, would love redundant. Love the white. The room is cute.

Hey maggie, I love you room and I am jealous of your painted suitcase. I think i will have to look for something like that. I am working on some new swaps, new projects for my studio, and on three new swaps. One is an old fashioned doll that I have to make for a swap I agreed to. I am a little bit stressed about that one.
Love you lots. I am going to try to post something on your Friday thing now.

Talk about redundant. I think I should read over carefully my comments before I hit the button.
