This Little Table

I just love this little drop leaf table. I purchased it about a year and a half ago and at the time it was painted lime green and came with two adorable spindle back black chair. This little table just has such great bones.
Recently, I decided that it was time to paint it, to give it new life. I know most people would have played it safe, maybe kept it white or painted it pink or even striped it to the bare wood and stained it. I know.
I did paint it white and let it sit, for days I looked at it in the pure state. And I really thought about leaving it that way. Then on a Sunday afternoon, something came over me and I just had to do it, pink and black. And now my little table has taken on new life. It now has it’s own personality. And how cute it will look with the two black chairs.

So let me know what you think, I would love to hear from you.
