Dark Stain to Bright White Sofa Table: Before and After

I seriously think I could paint every stained piece of furniture I own a shade of white.  With hardwood floors and dark furniture I need to brighten it up!  I love this transformation of a sofa table/book case.  I moved it from our master bedroom to the dining room. I love what less than a quart of paint can do to transform.  Here is the dining room as of 3 weeks ago: all the furniture is dark wood.  Check out the before pictures of the dining room here.  FYI.. in this photo the  room looks like 1978 powder blue eye shadow worn by my mother,  but it’s more gray than blue.

Painting the table in the bathroom.  I was multi-tasking! You don’t want to know! Kidding!
