Painted High Side Table/Entry Table

This table is another project from this weekend...notice I say "another" because it's surly not the last...I've been super busy painting this weekend and it was so much fun..

Anyway, this table is a Drexel Furniture high table.  The top was pretty scratched up so I stripped it...If only I knew how yucky stripping was, I would have just sanded away...There was a sticker on it that said "Property of US Government" which I though was charming so I went ahead and stuck it on the bottom in an effort to preserve it and protect it from the paint.  :) yeah I'm sentimental like that..

Here's the before! More masculine then the Queen Anne Table and the finish is too!

The top had a very thin layer of veneer so I stripped it to the wood...

 I painted it this blue color but kept the drawer and the top stained.

blurry but ok :)

I then gave the top another color wash in blue and some dark wax.

The height of this table makes it perfect for an entry way, and so does the drawer and the shelf.
So how do you like? Show some love!
