Painted table




This table was brought to me by a client. She got it from an uncle and it had sentimental value for her so she wanted it to be painted as a focal point in a bathroom, using bright colors . 






Here are "before and after" photos. I enjoy projects like this, they are a form of recycling! 
I wonder how her uncle would have liked it !

love the table. Many people would have just tossed it in the dump. I love what can be done with old "junky" pieces. I'm sure it is going to be a very talked about piece when her guests see it in her bathroom.
