A friend gave me two end tables that she didn't want any more. They are very sturdy, but the paint was chipped and just not "me"

Sanded and "Kilzed"


I took advice from fellow craftsters and added gold trim-I think it "pops" it out better now.
New pics with gold trim




I sanded it then painted a few coats of a pale yellow latex I had in my paint stash. The music is from about 1905-My father gave me a bunch of old sheet music years ago. I put the cover on the top and the music on the drawer and one side. Then I glued an old toy wooden viol that I've had sitting around forever. I polyurethaned it several times.
I really like it now-it's more me!! Also-the viol has been cleaned up a little-it's not "drippy" like in the pic Roll Eyes

Those are beautiful!  I love the shape of the tables - it's great that you figured out a way to give them new life.

I'm wondering if I should do a thin outline in blue or gold to highlight the curves?

That is awesome.

I would outline in gold too. The gold will go with any other color for future use. The blue might not blend as well with other colors.

Gold it is. I think I'll use a paint pen since I've already varnished the heck out of it Smiley
