Clark & Kensington Paint / Pursuing Vintage

I’m so excited to share a little home update with you! I picked up this wonderful Thomasville faux bamboo server for a steal off of Craigslist about two years ago. We use it as a console table.  It holds the “key box” to stash the car keys, and our stereo that we can’t give up because we still like a good ol’ CD once and awhile, and the Bose Soundlink.  There is a lot going on there.

It had already gone through one re-paint with its previous owner – a light brown/tan color.  Nice and neutral.  But faux bamboo doesn’t really scream for neutral.  It doesn’t deserve neutral.  It longs for color!

And color is what it got!

I wanted a coral color to accent the beautiful rose medallion lamp (as well as other coral accents I have around the room). I used Clark & Kensington Warm Coral paint.

I replaced the “key box” with this adorable hobnail bowl that I got in a previous Vintage Swap from Shelly (ConfettiStyle).  I also replaced the old drawer pulls with these amazing acrylic & brass pulls that I found on Etsy.

I think the piece gives a great “pop” of color to the room and has become more of a statement than it was before.  The faux bamboo is happy.

(By the way – there is usually a mirror above the server, but I’ve swapped the mirror temporarily with the painting for my fall mantel.  Check it out if you missed it!)

    What a pretty punch of color, Kristen. The coral really brightens the whole vignette, I love it. (I have a faux bamboo sofa table I got at an estate for $12 a few years ago. I immediately painted it white but I’ve been considering other colors and hopefully will have it updated by spring).
