I do not have a lot of family heirlooms and I am not sure this qualifies as an heirloom yet it is a table that belonged to my grandparents.
My dad tells me this was his dad’s humidor. Inside the little door the table is lined with a shiny gold metal. The girls love to hide things in it. My memories of the table are sitting in my Nana’s window with a plant on it with a water ring rightly earned. I have had this table since 1996? In all that time I have thought about painting it but could not bring myself to do it. Then I decided – it was time to enjoy the table and make it ours.
It is time to make over this tiny table! Here at the Little Red House there is no special place to paint items. So, I use my family room – GASP!
Pre-sanded and ready for paint…
Yes, that is a doggie door!
The color of the paint… Benjamin Moore’s Puritan Gray:
Back in place. I am not sure this lamp is the RIGHT size to be on this table, but it provides the light I need in the evening. But I do love the color especially against the yellow walls.
I think I made the right choice in painting it- and I should not have waited so long!!
