This schoolhouse-inspired dining room is so fun, with its floor-to-ceiling world map, vintage chairs, and purple (!) dining table. If this inspires you to paint your own dining table (or other piece of furniture) consider this tip from Jenny Brandt, the table's owner...
...get to know a car painter! She tells Design*Sponge in a recent post that her father owns an auto body shop, and always mixes the leftover paint to get custom colors. He's painted a lot of the furniture in her home, and because he's a professional, it always looks so much better than if she'd done it herself.
