Table-Take Two

Happy Monday! Was your weekend as hectic as mine?
I was busy painting, painting some more, and then repainting.

The sofa table I painted white last week (here) has already been repainted.
Yep, I lived with the white table for two days and decided I wasn't happy with it,
so I went with by first instinct and repainted it bright green.

My inspiration for this table was my antique green cupboard.
I found a great color match and I topped it off with a light rub of dark walnut stain to "dirty"
it and then I distressed it giving it a worn scuffed antique look.

I feel it shows off my collection of Gino Cenedese glass. These pieces deserve to be showcased and what could bring them more attention than being displayed on a table that bright?

I also painted my bedroom furniture. What a chore!
So, so glad it's finished and I love how it turned out.
I'll show you the master bedroom soon. Promise!

Until then, I 'll be visiting these linky parties and checking out what you've been up to.

Have a super week!
