Silver accents were always my favorite. My love for gold finished pieces was minimal until my sister and I went on a furniture shopping tour back in Lebanon. After pointing out some elements of the furniture, my sister’s passion for gold became contagious. I came back to the US and the first thing that I wanted to do was transform my house into a golden palace ( well at least one room, the living room). Let it shine, I said.

So I thought that I have to get rid of those cheap looking IKEA black metal tables. First I painted them, added 2 custom mirrors.

                               Below is the inspiration picture: $ 745

And I got to say: Bye Bye IKEA, AGAIN !!!!!




So now I have in the living room Gold and Silver accents and I love this combination, what about you? Do you like just one finish?Which one do you prefer?Or you are like me a mix and match girl?
