Entry Hall Table

There is a table in my entry hall that has survived many years and many makeovers.  It has been painted several colors over time.  It used to be in my nursery - yes, that's right.  Not my children's nurseries, MY nursery.  I won't say how many years ago that actually was in order to maintain the general assumption that I am still 29 (you all do think I'm 29, RIGHT?). 

The table has seen better days and is beginning to get a little rickety, but I can't seem to part with it.  I have always had a hard time trying to find the right piece of furniture for this space because it is a little odd shaped and there is really no wall to put something against.  It looks very barren without something there though.  This table is also a little odd shaped and just works there.  I am on a mission to get rid of the overabundance of the color brown in my house and lighten things up a bit.  The little old table was one of my first targets. 

Here is the table before.
I decided to go with the same weathered cream paint color I used on the stool in my bathroom.  A couple of coats and she was ready to go.
Done?  Not quite.  It now looked  I am a lover of all things old.  So...I did a little distressing and then I was done.  Here it is finished and back in place.

Better views of the distressing:

What do you think of the new look?  Here it is one more time, before and after.

Now I am off to finish up a few other projects in the works. Check back soon; I will be blogging about them!
