OMGosh - I've had the worst time trying to upload my photos (before and after) soooooo maybe now that these photos loaded, whatever the issue was - it has been resolved!!!
As usual I don't always remember to take 'before' photos of my projects because I'm so excited to get started. I had already painted one coat of white - before I remembered BUT - if you look closely you will be able to see a reddish mahogany color on the inside of the table - that's how it started out :)
This lovely little table just looked like it could use polka dots - blue, no less. I cut a potato in half and carved out the circle and proceeded to add dots!!!
