Cranberry Lovin'

I have a feeling that red is going to show up a lot more in color choices this year.
Or at least I hope it will!
I can't tell you how head over heels I have fallen in love with cranberry lately.
More and more red might just be popping up in my posts to come, so don't be too surprised when it happens ;)
If you all are anything like me I have be captivated by the neutral & calmness of white, grey and wood tones these past few months. Yet a few weeks ago I found myself sitting in our house thinking wow, we need to add some color in here!
& my first choice was red. way to go from one extreme to the other Jordyn. 
I love the look of red against grey but it just wasn't the right mesh for my house since my lovely vintage couch is navy- a bit too Americana for my taste but boy oh boy do I love these lovely red tables I re-did, 
I was sad to let them go since they didn't flow with my house but I'm happy they are in great hands now with a lovely new owner who has the right place for them!

Before:


I was totally in love at hello when I first laid my eyes on these cute tables (there are two of them by the way)
I was sad though that on the other table one of the pulls was missing and I couldn't find another so I had to replace them.BUT I saved them for future projects so I'm not too heartbroken.


I loved all the little extras these tables had to add.
From the detail in the legs...


to the "bead boarding" look alike sides. They looked quite vintage, especially in the wood color.
By far my most favorite find out there!
** Please excuse the poor lighting, it was pouring when I went to start sanding these beauties, I always forget befores! So at least I got them this time.

After:


Like I said, I can't help but love the look of red against grey!
Now the paint color was called cranberry but they definitely were a bit more red then I wanted but I was still very pleased with the outcome.


I opted to go with basic knobs on the drawers because I didn't want to take away from all the detail everywhere else. I really wanted the details to shine.


I'm sad I couldn't find a place in my house for these tables! Who wouldn't be? They are too stinkin' cute!
Have any of you fallen in love with any bold colors or color combos lately?!
My goal in 2012 is too broaden my horizons in color choices.
What about you all? What is your goal for 2012?
I would love to hear from you! If any of you happen to do some furniture refinishes lately with fun colors link them up to my Facebook page here!
I would love to hear from you all & see what you all are up too!

I'll be back tomorrow with a fun post on what we have been up to in the Pruitt household! Many changes have come since my dad has been down in North Carolina visiting! I can't wait to share them all with you!

Xoxo
