Fun little table with awesome detail

 I picked up this little table from a private seller this weekend.
Has some issues, like water damaged top,
and a loose shelf which I reglued.
 It's got the coolest detail and lines.....
looks like maybe from the 40's???
 I couldn't wait to get some paint on it!
I painted the body in Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White.
And then I mixed up some 
Paris Grey/Louis Blue/Old White/Graphite and did
the columned legs.
 I also used that combo to do a little dry brushing 
over the top and other areas.
 After distress sanding, 
I waxed in clear and dark wax for the top, 
and used lime wax for the rest.
 Loading it up in the car...
Yummy shabby goodness...
Here it is in my booth at RVA Antiques on the Avenue.
 Just love the patina on this...
 Great storage, too, with six little shelves...
For sale at $129.
