Bye Bye IKEA, AGAIN

Silver accents were always my favorite. My love for gold finished pieces was minimal until my sister and I went on a furniture shopping tour back in Lebanon. After pointing out some elements of the furniture, my sister's passion for gold became contagious. I came back to the US and the first thing that I wanted to do was transform my house into a golden palace ( well at least one room, the living room). Let it shine, I said.

 
So I thought that I have to get rid of those cheap looking IKEA black metal tables. First I painted them , added 2 custom mirrors ( and yes I brought these 2 mirrors from Lebanon they flew with me 8500 miles since in Lebanon they cost each $ 10 and in the US they asked for $ 80 , $ 80 whatttttttt of course Im not gonna pay for the mirrors more than I paid for the table it self ).

                               Below is the inspiration picture:

And I got to say : Bye Bye IKEA, AGAIN !!!!!







So now I have in the living room Gold and Silver accents and I love this combination, what about you? Do you like just one finish?Which one do you prefer?Or you are like me a mix and match girl?

Total cost for each table:
table $19.99
Mirror $10
Paint already had it
------------------------------
                      $ 29.99
