Old is New
This is called, "The square table". In our house growing up, when Mom would say, the square table, we all knew which one she meant. This table held all sorts of fascinating reading material. National Geographic magazines, great big huge picture books of all sorts of animals and birds, and a great big book full of Norman Rockwell paintings that I would look through for hours.
I loved this table. I'm not sure why. Sometimes I would take all of the books out of the bottom shelf and crawl in there and play. I liked dusting this table which if you know my dislike for dusting, is truly odd that I would enjoy dusting this table! This table and our piano. I liked dusting the piano too. Wish I still did...
Several years ago I inherited the square table and it has sat next to my recliner being the 'catch all'.
I decided that my house needed some color. A splash of color here, a splash of color there, and make it red please. I like red!
And I like my new square table. Spray paint. Embrace it!
