Well, I hadn't planned on doing this.
But after spilling super glue and having it take off the paint in a giant chunk, I had no choice.
Of course, I'm always up for a change and glad to try a new look. I'd been pretty happy with the bright white with speckles that the table was done in before, but if I was repainting, I wanted to do something different, so I went with gray, then a crackle finish, then white, then a dark glaze under a clear topcoat.
Now that it is done, I'm loving it. It still has that white feeling that I wanted, but in a more rustic way.
Plus, it looks great with the "new" French net runner I got at an estate sale for $2.
Our dinner guests seem to like it too. Sugarwings invited some of her friends to join us around the table when Aunt Sharon came to visit.
At the moment, I am trying to really, really, enjoy my kitchen and appreciate every bit of it, because we are about to start on a remodelling project and I'm afraid I'll be living out of boxes and in somewhat of a jumbled mess for a while. Once we are done, I'll be thrilled with the new room, I'm sure. But I see some rough times ahead before we get to that point! Please wish me luck.
