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!)
