I'm calling it a 'side table'. I'm sure that all you real decorators know it by some fancy-pants name but unfortunately, my fancy pants are at the cleaners. I set the husband to work stripping no less than four coats of paint off this bad boy...
He says there's something satisfying about stripping all that old paint off. I thought it looked really gross.
Doesn't it look like a giant blew his nose all over this paper? Ugh.
After the hubs stripped it and sanded it for about a million years, I painted the legs white and stained the top with a walnut... the hubs finished it up with a polyurethane coat and IT WAS DONE. It probably seemed like it took longer than it actually did because it's been SO HOT HERE I CAN'T STAND IT. At any rate, it's done.
I love it!
