It had such cute little charm that we both wanted to take it home for keeps. So we used it in lots of pictures and hemmed and hawed over whether to keep it as is, refinish it, or paint it.
We had seen a similar table at Camas Antiques that had been painted and it was cute, but I still wasn't convinced.
So it hung around my house for a while getting used as a prop and getting in my way in the garage between shoots.
So I had to make a decision. I took a cue from Marian and decided the perfect balance would be to sand down the top and stain it, while painting the legs.
I primed the legs and painted them a very pale blue. Then distressed them a little.
I have to say, I love it more now than I did before.
And because we were rushing to fill our booth before the big holiday open house today, I didn't get to stage the table and take lovely pictures of it.
So you will have to make do with the pictures of it installed in the booth.
If it doesn't sell soon, I may tell Lisa it sold and sneak it home so I can love it a little longer.
