AFTER

I am very excited to show the results of our table makeover!  It took a little bit of trial and error to get the table to take a whitewashed stain, but in the end it was the perfect combination of modern and rustic.  I used dried flowers as the centerpiece to highlight the colors of the season.  Also on the table is a Juliska pitcher, a cheeseboard from Pier 1 and custom made napkins from a Balinese fabric I purchased on our honeymoon.

The best part about a new piece of furniture is enjoying it!  We celebrated by having a small dinner party and setting the table using Waterford linens and antique brass candlesticks.
