A Table is a table is a table?

This was my first one dollar find on Goodwill's Dollar Days.
It is not something I would normally buy, but, come on...one dollar???  Surely somebody somewhere will love it after I'm done with it.
So, after priming with Kilz spray primer (remember? I'm the Spray Paint Queen), I sprayed on some Krylon Cherry Gloss.This was, of course too bright for what I had in mind, but would have actually looked great in a kids room or playroom...
I sanded a little, and then wiped on some black tinted glaze.
Now it had a country feel to it. Of course, I felt it needed some more "pop", so I experimented with stencils...

First this...


Then this....





But in the end I changed it back to this...

Still not bad for a one dollar find, right?

I love all your comments, please keep them coming!
