Top Redone

 Good morning....It's a beautiful Thursday morning and I have the day off of work, which I am loving it and can't quite decide what to do.  Well, guys, I did it again.....I painted and redid this table and went oops, I forgot to take the before picture.  When I finally figure out what to do with a project I quickly get started and when I get done I realize that I didn't take a before picture..  Anyways, this cute little square table had a oak top that had stained rings on the surface.  The  rest of table was already painted black, which I already liked.  I really liked  this beige flat paint I had and decided to paint the top and the drawer that color.  I  like black and beige.  When the paint was dry, I splattered the top and the drawer with some black paint.  I than outlined the top and the drawer with black paint, so that it looked distressed, but wasn't.
 When the table was done I thought it needed something more.  I went thru some of my jewelry finds and I found this pretty brooch.  I loved the colors and thought it gives it a dressy look and a little more color.  I glued the brooch on with E6000 glue.  I am using this table in my house and the brooch has stayed on.   
 I really like this table.  Sometimes it is fun to do something that is easy and looks so different from the original look.  The lines of this piece of furniture are straight with no curves or dips.  Sometimes this is refreshing....
 So what do you think?  Until next time, Dianne.......

  1. what a neat idea to use a brooch for the handle pull- love it :)

  2. Oh my goodness, I LOVE the knob! What a great idea! The whole table looks great, you did a wonderful job!

  3. he constantly changing fashionable take on redone demonstrates the depth of the subject. Remarkably redone is heralded by shopkeepers and investment bankers alike, leading many to state that spasmodically it returns to create a new passion amongst those who study its history. Often it is seen as both a help and a hinderence to the upper echelons of progressive service sector organisations, obviously. Hold onto your hats as we begin a journey into redone.
