Upcoming November Projects!

Meet miss classy side table and 90's gold chandelier!

After 2 hours of looking around some of my favorite thrift shops, I'd found these two goodies to makeover this month, and I'm just a little excited about that.

The chandelier has been a project I've been wanting to try my hand at for awhile since seeing projects like this:

As for you, miss side table, it's going to be the milk paint for you! (General Finishes of course!)

The side table is in semi-rough shape. It looks like a kid had fun with their crayons on it (especially on the top), and that a parent unsuccessfully tried to scrub the colors off but just ended up smudging them around. It's dingy and a bit dirty in some places too. But it has no missing chunks of wood (that I can see so far) and having that awesome original fixture is a bonus. The detail on the legs and lovely curves are going to make this a statement piece in the right paint color.
Which leads me to ask: any bold colors y'all would find particularly awesome to try on these pieces? Turquoise blue? Lavender? Red? I'd love to have some input (leave a comment below).

Can't wait to get started! Weeee!
