Delicious Little End Table

Before.  Picked up for a couple bucks at a yard sale.
 I've been just itching to paint something a real pale, buttery yellow.  Mmmmmm butter.  That's why  my I titled this a Delicious Little End Table!
What is more annoying than a stripped out screw?!!  I couldn't get the drawer pull of so I had to paint around it with a tiny little brush!  Then since i couldn't spray paint the handle silver, I had to just as carefully paint silver on it with a small artistic brush.

Me and my fine motor skills managed, and I'm proud I didn't have to call the hubby over to help.  Weird, with his big hands and my little ones, you'd think I'd be the one good at fine motor.  Nope, other way around.  He's the one you get to thread a needle, get a knot out, etc.

I finished it off with a harlequin stencil on the top using a super light gray.  And I didn't fill the shapes in totally, so it looks a little aged.  Now I need to go get a warm muffin and slather on some butter.  Mmmmmm.
