Uh-Oh...help painting coffee table

My husband just began sanding our coffee table. It had many nicks and scratches so needed a lot of attention. He had assumed because it was Thomasville and it is extremely heavy that the table was solid wood. After much sanding he found it is laminate. Which obviously cannot be stained. He’s beside himself! Although we bought it on craigslist it was extremely expensive even then and I would really like to keep the table. I have seen on here many projects with painting dining room tables etc. I know it can be done! I just don’t know how. Any thoughts or ideas would be so appreciated! I really just want it back to the way it was so we are looking for more a traditional look as a final result. A nice dark color. Thank you so much!

I need help choosing a color for my guest bathroom

Help the colors in my vanity are not the easiest to work with when it comes to choosing a paint color for the walls. I will one day replace the vanity but for now I’m changing nothing but wall color. So you see I’ve got a bunch of white (sink, toilet, bath...) and then the shiny chrome of course! So....with the oranges and reds and browns in the vanity...I can’t come up with anything! I don’t want white or cream colors such as what’s on the walls currently. I’d like to be a bit more bold. If you would include name of color and brand of paint if you have a specific one in mind, that would be great. Also pictures would be very helpful! Any suggestions are appreciated!thank you

How to repair silver plated finish

I've had these reindeer candelabras which are brass constructed with a silver plated finish for years. I have always stored them together and used them together. One is perfect and the other is...well....pitted. I have no idea how to repair the one. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Large Window Pane Wall Art...need INEXPENSIVE ideas

***I'M ADDING THIS A FEW HOURS LATER BASED ON ANSWERS I'VE RECEIVED. I WANT TO PUT UP ONLY ONE PIECE, NOTHING MORE. I LOVE THE IDEA OF SEVERAL THROUGHOUT THE PANES BUT I WANT ONE PIECE BEHIND THE 2 WINDOW PANES. TYOh please help! I'm new on this site but am loving it! My family and friends think I'm completely addicted and they're right! I'm saving a ton of money I found the window pane wall art idea on here of course and fell in love with it as I live in the country...it really fits. We've been here 4.5 years and have never decorated this very large wall When I saw the idea I knew that was it. Bought 2 each 40"x44", 12 panes each. The total length is 84". I do not want to put art/pictures in each pane, rather, I want one mural, landscape piece of "art." In my photo you can see the shower curtain I bought which was not the size as advertised. This is the exact idea I want however. I am open to still using it if any of you have ideas of what I can add to fill 7" on each end. The shower curtain is 70". I did think of cutting it in half (to lose that 4.5" where they meet at the center), but with that size at 35", it would still need additional material at the ends. I am open to any ideas hoping they are extremely inexpensive and fit my thoughts of one scene.Thanks so much in advance!PS~Yes I plan on cleaning these and staining the white at bottom. I was so jazzed I had to see them on the wall!
