(I also bought the shelves and will be spraying them gold and putting them in my office)
Anyways- I've been wanting a gold metal and glass coffee table for our living room for a while now but haven't found "the one". I love the Clairemont from Crate and Barrel but it's too large for the small space.

Then I found the Vittsjo coffee table from Ikea which is a perfect size for the space- 30" diameter. So this weekend I got out the gold spray paint (actually, I don't think I ever put it away...) It was super easy and for only $49.99 plus the cost of a can of spray paint it was a cheap fix!
Not too many pieces which is always a good sign- with Olive photobombing as usual.
I put together the table and then took it out to my
spray paint lab garage.
I used Rust-oleum Pure Gold spray paint and primer in one. I really liked the way it covered and the spray nozzle is so much easier to grip than the old school cans with the nozzle on top. (again with the photobomb!)
I did 3 coats, waiting an hour or two between each one and then let it dry completely overnight.
I didn't use the bottom laminate base and instead just placed the glass back on top.
I am so happy with my new coffee table! I'm thinking about using the mirror spray paint to spray the glass but I've never used it so I'm a little nervous.
Has anyone used it before and what did you think?
