After: I added some ceramic tiles, which were custom cut to slip into place. After a coat of paint, summer white, my favorite from Sherwin Williams, and some faceted crystal globe finials (actually cabinet knobs), this table has become as sophisticated as it is usable.
The second shelf holds a divided serving tray that corrals the trappings of our everyday living.
Yellow and green accents add cheer.
I like the angles of the porch gable, as they are seen through the lights of the front door.
The view from the kitchen into the living room. Whiskers, my oldest cat, remains steadfastly perched on the back of the couch.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project. It's been fun for me! Maybe this will inspire you to take up a simple project of your own.
Until next time...
