Magazine/Book Table

Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a good weekend!  I'm a little tired this morning from staying up late watching the big Superbowl game.  What a fun game to watch and it doesn't hurt that my team won!  I found this magazine/book table through craigslist awhile back.  I'm not sure if this is the correct name for this piece of furniture.  Anyways here's the before picture....
There was nothing wrong with it, just a few paint marks on the top.  I really like the look of furniture that has both painted and non-painted surfaces.  I gave this piece a light sanding on those surfaces I was going to paint and then primed them with Kilz.  I then chose to paint with a very soft shade of pink, which almost looks cream, on the top and bottom of the table.  I then sealed it with polyacrylic to protect the painted surface.  Here's the after picture....The picture quality isn't that great...sorry.  It's hard to really even see the color.
Have a great Monday!!
