Just a Little Side Table

My neighborhood had our annual springtime garage sale
two weekends ago~
 and I found the perfect vintage side table to go next to our reclining love seat.
These recliner sofas are so comfortable,
but when I sit there,
I tend to drift off to dreamland in no time flat.
The side where I sit needs a table.
Now the only thing about these sofas, they have to be a little distance from your coffee table
so the foot rest can come up and recline.
Thus the need for another small table for one side.
Being near the door, I am limited to the type of table.
This little one was perfect.
So I hand painted it an ebony black
right over it's original dark walnut stain.
I painted it black for a little accent as this room
has white cottage pieces with neutrals and black
and a bit of aqua for color.
Next, I added an iron gate design
using a large stencil
and cottage white paint to the table top.
With a little distress around the edges, sealed
with a water based varnish, it's complete.

Perfect for it's new spot.
Cup of tea anyone?
How about  relaxing with a movie?
Pretty French pillow with the Eiffel tower in silver.
Cozy spot to relax.
Gotta run,
My tea is getting cold,
and we are having a cold spell in Texas.
What happened to springtime?
Hurry back spring~~~~
Thank you for stopping by.
Have a great weekend.
