My mom has been looking for a set of nesting tables for quite awhile. A few months ago we were in Ross and found three black nesting tables with gold paint accents.
We weren't a fan of the color, but the size and style was perfect. Nothing a little paint can't fix! I didn't take a real before picture, but this kind of gives you an idea:
And then gave them a coat of green paint.
Not long after I had finished my mom's set of nesting tables, I happened upon this set of (also gold) beauties at a local thrift store for $15. They reminded me of this table. I knew exactly where I'd put them (once my husband finally got rid of the treadmill that has been sitting in the corner of our family room.....)!
I painted the largest and smallest ones white and the middle table a light shade of gray.
