Restore Update

Between rain and lowes delivering a new dishwasher and carpooling, I managed to put a little work into my table. I didn’t care for the cream color I used on the body, so I sanded down and went over with a very pale shade of blue. The drawer is my favorite part so far. A teal coat of paint, followed by sanding and gray stain. 

I used oil paints and left some stains in the top wood years ago. Will need to remember these do NOT sand off and they do show through the stain. However, while some may see stains, I see character 🙂

Just need to tighten some screws, find some pretty knobs, and seal with poly, and this one is done! I plan on using in front of my huge front window where all the sunlight shines through and placing some of my many many plants on top. Maybe I can find some decorative hooks for the underside and learn macrame so I can utilize this thing even more.
