The Kitchen Table Is Done

In my past post here I wrote about painting our kitchen table. I didn't like the wood color at all and if I painted my kitchen chairs white or a lighter color I would have used a dark stain on it, but I decided it would be fun to paint it instead. Someday I'm going to build my own farmers table....someday
again here is a picture of what it looked like before
to me it looked like the color orange

and here it is finished

much lighter isn't it?

Although with the poly it became more green then without it, which I knew the poly would change the color I wish I used paste wax...ugh thanks hunny

But now looking at it I dont mind it
Do you like my new light fixture?
I used Stonington gray by BM
It came out very light on the table, almost a pale blue to it,  I painted a small area in our master bedroom and it was dark on our walls.

Zoey loves to be in the picture......if you look hard enough you can tell there's a color difference between the table top and leg.

you can still see the grain

I've been dying to use this runner....I picked this up before Christmas for $8.00 at Pier one imports, Its a little wrinkly but I can't iron it 
look at all the pretty detail

It might seem like the table looks like the wall color in these photos but its not. 
What do you think of my table makeover? Its really easy to clean which is great with four kids. 
Would you paint a kitchen table?
