Antique Peacock Side Table

If you know me at all you know I cannot resist a great pair of legs!  Well this little table has 3 pairs of great legs!  It was pretty rough when it came to my shop.  Parts were falling off and it needed some minor repairs, but (along with those fabulous legs) I  loved the shape of it and the inlay on the top.  I debated whether or not I should paint the top, but in the end I just couldn't do it! :)  I had so much fun painting this radio cabinet that I couldn't wait until I found another piece to do the same color.  I knew right away when I saw it that it was the one. :)




 Before





 After






 I sanded the top all the way down (but left some of the old stain on the edges because I like the way it looks when you restain it)  and stained it with Minwax in Dark Walnut, then gave her 3 coats of poly in a semi-gloss.  I just realized I covered up the inlay with all my "stuff".  Oops!  It is very unique and pretty... maybe I'll have to go back and take another pic. 







 This color is just so pretty--so much better in person, too.  I just stood there and stared at it for a minute (yes, I'm nuts!).  




 Check out all those yummy legs!

  18. I am new to this site,but as soon as I would view one of your creations-I'd scroll down to the bottom to see what else you did!And I was in the process of doing so,when my wonderful husband came home from work,and the minute he walked in-I greeted him with a BIG smile! I then asked him to come and look at what I was viewing,and I said,"Isn't this amazing!!". And he agreed!! I have been sick for a very long time,and you brought such joy to my heart as I viewed your masterpieces. It reminded me of the Scripture in the Bible(2 Corinthians 5:17)where it says that Jesus takes our "old" man,and He creates a "new" man-the old has past-the new has come!!!" Isn't that awesome! I will keep coming to your site-as it reminds me that even my worn out body will some day be made new.In the meantime,I will greatly enjoy watching what you do next! God's blessings to you,and yours!
