I bought this table at a yard sale for $10 (it came with a little chair).
It's solid wood.
It was as ugly as...."sin"....
Many layers of dark varnish that had bubbled.
Yes, I wish I could remember to take "before" pictures.
I sanded it and painted it a dark moss-green color, then finished off
with a layer of brush-painted off-white.
I purposely gave it a scant coating with the off-white.
(I don't like things to be too "perfect". Good thing, eh..)
Then I printed off an image that I liked, traced and cut it out with freezer paper which I used as a stencil.
A word to the wise: the paint did bleed a bit under the freezer paper; hence the outline in white around the utensils.
(Again, it's a good thing that I don't require "perfection" to be content, hhmmm...)
And there it is. The (little) People can be found perched at this often, on our porch.
A happily overhauled and useful object for The People.
It is them, The People, that I'm workin' for, after all...
Here's to many-a-peanut-butter-sandwich..and this Table!
