The Wedding Table DONE!!

I finally got the end table my parents got for a wedding present painted and glazed.. It took me a while to decide rather to do it or leave it the way it was

 It was well worn and had a lot of scratches on it so I took the plunge and did it

 So I primed it with a red spray paint which had primmer in it and I figured if I used that I wouldn't need as many coats of red paint... I know it is real bright red!!!! My sweet husband said  "I think you made a big mistake"

So here is the table all painted, I used Cherry Chocolate paint and then went over it with Barn Red....I love the color, that is what I used on my sun flower table

I glazed it with black paint by painting it on and rubbing it off with a soft cloth, it took me a while with this cause I put to much black on and had to paint it again and glaze over it....

The picture is of my mom and dad a few years dad passed away 4 years ago and my mom hasn't seen it yet....I hope she loves it as much as I do....
                                    What do you think should of or shouldn't of???

  6. Hi Marianne,
    Thanks for stopping by! I have enjoyed reading your blog and love your table. I have very similar that was my grandma's there is just something about old furniture.

  7. What a gorgeous table! I'm stopping by to say thank you for visiting me at my blog. You have a wonderful blog :)

  8. The table looks awesome! Thanks for stopping by at my Simple Family Stories blog look for me on facebook and twitter too. I also have a website called the Have a great Friday!

  9. I think you did an amazing job. Although I love to keep old things in their original condition as much as possible, I am a great fan of renewing them when they are just a bit too worn or don't fit in with our decor. Nothing better than saving an old family piece. I know your mom will love it.

    Thanks for following me from the over 40 blog hop and I am following you back.


  10. This really came out cute. I like the color you chose. The detail of the table made it worth trying that's for sure and it was a success!

  12. You have done a really good job on the table. I think it takes confidence to decide to change something that is obviously so special. Well done.

  13. Should have! Looks great! Would you believe I have the exact same table?! It's a project I haven't gotten to yet. My table doesn't have a sweet story attached like yours does because I picked it up second hand from a friend's sale. I love what you did to yours!

  14. Definitely should! The table looks great! You did an amazing job! Thanks for the follow at Life or Something Like It. Following back!
