family room updates...

i finished the side table.  we decided to make it look like an old barrel of wine.  so with a nod to my italian heritage and our wedding year...this is what we got.  i love the finished project.

after sanding off the glaze, a coat of primer

making the barrel effect

red from san romano 2007

i also worked on the mantel a whole bunch.  two coats of primer and three coats of antique yellow later....i'm still not sure of the final color.  here are some pictures, but the paint will probably need to go a bit browner, and of course, the accessories are far from being finished.
final pictures will come when that side of the room is complete!!
