Little pink polka dot

Good Morning everyone....Hope everyone had a good weekend.  Found this little table at a garage sale and just loved it metal curvy legs.  The table only cost $5.00 and I thought it would be fun to paint it up and add a little girly look to it.  This is the before picture:
I took off the legs and sprayed them a soft pink.  I had a hard time trying to decide exactly what I wanted to do with the top of the table.  So after I sanded the top down, I decided to paint the top a light grey (which I am being told is the new white).  I  painted light pink polka dots on top of the table to match the legs.  I than shabbied the edges of the table. Some of the previous paint came thru which was a dark red.  I thought that my polka dots had dried all the way thru, so I had started to wipe the table down after I had sanded the edges and my polka dots starting coming off.  I started to panic and thought that this was not what I wanted for a finished look, but I decided that I did like the look and it matched the shabbiness that I had done around the edges.  So here is the finished product....What do you think?
