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. diningroom1

Here is the before table:

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

    Popping over from Wake Up Wed! I host a link up on SarahCelebrates.com for DIY, crafts and upcycles (if you made it you should share it). Stop by! I can’t say which one I like more, the dark or light, both are beautiful. I tend to go dark in my living area and bright white in the basement. Try to make it as bright and sterile looking as possible down there =)

    Wow, it made a big difference for such a subtle change. I really like the shelf much better white! I love transforming things with paint! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday!
