White done right

I have to first start off by thanking all of your for your sweet comments regarding my union jack dresser.  It is very gratifying knowing that others feel you have done a good job! 

I have been meaning to post about this little tray table I got at the auction.  Funny thing is that I didn't realize that it was a tray table until a nice lady that has a booth in the same shop as I do told me it was.  I thought the top was just broken off the base.  She told me what she thought I should price it at.  She is very nice to give me advice on pricing and what kind of pieces she feels will sell good.  Being new to this booth venture, I greatly appreciate any advice.

Anyways, on to this sweet little tray table.  Here she is straight from the auction:


I had to glue all the joints and used twine to "clamp" it together as well as add a missing finial.  The finish was in bad shape. What better way to spruce up this little gal than with some paint. I always feel white can really freshen up a piece. Now she resides in my booth. Hopefully, her stay will not be that long before she goes to some lovely home!
