Little oak table gets a paint transformation...

Remember this cute little oak table
that I used at the lease house?

It was perfect for that room. 
I didn't take up much space 
and matched the armoire that I needed to use as a pantry.
I've had this table about 23 years. 
it's been used as a kitchen table a few places,
but mostly for a sewing table.
And I'm excited to use it again.

I've actually missed that little table, since we moved. I've had it downstairs just taking up space, a place to use for a sewing table when I had the rest of the downstairs straightened up. But as much as I love having the bigger table in the kitchen, it takes up way too much space. Space that I want to use more as a sitting area than a kitchen dining spot. It's just the two of us 99.9% of the time, so we're having to squeeze by it constantly. But hey, that's my fault. I like my other pieces and so I decided to see about switching the two tables out. 

Here's the kitchen at Christmas

Right now the little table is receiving a Chalk Paint transformation
so it will match these larger chairs that also match the china cabinet.

Yes, I could have left it stained,
 but there's nothing else in the sitting area that it would match.

I hope to have it ready to go this weekend,
since I have some July 4th Patriotic Fun to get photoed.

Here it is downstairs, 
waiting for the liquid poly finish to dry.
We couldn't locate the insert leaf,
so I'll have to paint that when it shows up.

Did you catch my invitation to the Patriotic Party?

 Hope you'll plan on sharing all your fun Patriotic posts, past and present.
