I found this side table near a dumpster and took it home. It was a bit broken and had many water rings on the surface. I sanded it down and pondered what to do with it. If the wood is good I don't usually prefer to paint over it, and the wood was good, but it just didn't call out to be stained. Painting it white was the only thing that felt right.
So I painted, and painted, and varnished, and then glued the little buttons to the rim, then painted some more. After all that I bought car mirrors, and glued them to the table, I felt I needed texture. But I'm still not sure I like it.
