DIY Part One

In an attempt to utilize all the furniture we have hanging around (& to get our shed cleaned out) I have been trying my hand at some new paint techniques. I redid this little table to put at the end of our hall. I wanted it to have an antiqued finish. I started with a nice seafoam, calming blue paint. Ariana loved the table after that color was applied. Then, much to her dismay, I went over it with a brown stain to try to achieve the antique look. She could not understand why I was making it look 'dirty'. She does not like the completed piece at all and thinks I simply ruined it! I know from a 7 year old point of view, it must seem to be so silly to try to make something look old. But I actually like how it turned out....
