Just a quick update on the coffee table . . . . it's been sanded, primed, painted, sanded, distressed, and sanded again. I am very happy with the ALMOST finished product, but these darn pictures aren't showing the distressing at all. The snow and ice are barely melting away here, and I can't get outside for good pics so here it is . . . . try to imagine it more distressed! Remember, the part that shows through the glass is going to be covered with pictures and other stuff - just can't seem to figure out - I'm sure that will always be a work in progress. I thought about painting that a different color, but I can't decide . . . . this is why I am always doing home improvement - INDECISIVE AMY!
