Red Accent Table and a Giveaway!

My house is still a complete wreck – here I’ll show you..

A sunroom addition

Yup, still no sign of our new windows. In fact, we just got a call that now they won’t be here for another week, grrr, not a happy camper.

So to soothe my DIY soul I did a quick and fun project to brighten a little spot of my living room, my new RED accent table! This corner of the house is now officially my happy place.

Red Accent Table with OPI Paint

Let’s back up the bus a little and I’ll show you the before, maybe you never even noticed this little table before, it was pretty incognito, being almost the identical color as the walls…totally stealth mode – not exactly the look I was going for.

I’ve been wanting to paint it for a while to help it stand out, but just wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. Enter the new line of paint colors at Ace Hardware from OPI! Yes, like OPI as in the nail polish! How fun is that? Clark+Kensington and OPI have partnered to bring you the same gorgeous colors you love on your nails, but for your home.

OPI Paint Colors

There are 3 unique color collections for a total of 18 paint colors. I’m totally digging these colors, they are the perfect accent colors to add a pop of color to your room.

I’m personally a classic nail color kinda gal, so the OPI Red appealed to me right away.

Let’s pretend my poor unadorned/mistreated/typically spray paint-manicured nails are actually painted in the same fab OPI Red whilst I point out my color selection! Yet another reason to love this paint, when I can’t have the perfect manicure at least I can have the perfect table :)

This is a tried and true, classic red and I love it, but if you are scared of that much color there are several great neutral tones in the collection as well. Greys, blues, greens – there is a color for every style.

The OPI paint colors are great for accents like picture frames, small furniture pieces and you could totally use them on your walls too! I went to my neighborhood Ace Hardware and had my gorgeous OPI Red mixed in Clark+Kensington Eggshell Paint Plus Primer and it covered beautifully in just two coats.

I’m crossing my fingers I have more progress to show you on the sunroom next week, but in the meantime I’ll be hanging out here with my fancy pants red table dreaming of windows…
