I moved into a new house where I have my own room {and own bathroom for the semester-woot woot}. New room means new decor and furniture right? I thought I'd write about a different part of my room and decor every so often. 

My tiffany blue table is one of my favorite things in my room. I bought a cheap side table from Walmart (you know the ones that come with a bunch of wood, screws, things you don't know what the heck they are, and an instruction manual of how to put it together that makes absolutely NO sense?-ya that one), Krylon primer spray paint, (Krylon is the best brand of spray paint to use), Krylon  "Blue Ocean Breeze" spray paint, and Krylon matte-finish finishing spray. {one can of each was plenty}

I put the table together {it took way too long}
Spray painted the table with primer {one coat, no sanding-yay!}
Spray painted the table with my color of choice {blue ocean breeze aka tiffany blue, I did three coats}
{Spray painting tip-wait about 15 minutes in between coats}
Spray painted the table with the finishing spray {one coat}
Let the table hit some stuff during the move to give it more of an antique finish and let some of the original color (black) show through. {if you can be lazy about something might as well right?}
I put a beautiful doily on the table that is from my grandmother.
Then I put a mason jar of flowers from my best friend's wedding on top of the doily and 
viola! Yay for cheap and cute!
