I peeled the Formica top off and gave it a new top that made it looked grooved like old fashion tongue and groove. Then I painted the entire piece with primer then black. The top I painted off white over a coat of crackle finish. I stenciled a small design on the top for accent and glazed the top with dark brown. I am glad for the opportunity to paint this table and I can picture it in someones home topped with their special treasures.

Half As Much
The glass is always half full as far as a I am concerned. Times are tough but we continue to have shelter and food. The love we experience makes us rich beyond measure. I don't mind not being well off financially I have never experienced total freedom in that department. I know for sure that it has made me the person I am today one that takes nothing for granted and throws nothing away (my favorite part)! I found a table last week that was half of a table that had been fashioned into a accent table. When I found it the top was Formica and it was in dire need of some love and attention......da da da da! That's what I am here for, to give second chances to the unwanted! Yeah.
