A Small Table for My Store Tablescapes

I am sorry I have not visited most of you. My mom almost collapsed last Saturday and was taken back to the hospital and was just released today. Her BP went down to 80/30. So, my time was spent mostly in the hospital because she did not want me to leave her. I only left her when she was napping and when she finally slept at night and then I was back again the next morning. I am happy to say that she is ok now and they just had to stop all her medicine except for her high cholesterol. The doctor said she did not need any of the others. so they were all discontinued and she is doing so much better now.
My post will be very short because I am still exhausted, mostly from worrying. I just did not want to miss Kim's first party. Please visit Kim and the other participants at http://savvysouthernstyle.blogspot.com/
If you visited my post last Saturday, you would have seen this table. I found it in an antique shop in Woodville. I like the shape and the size. I thought it would be perfect for the store for me to do tablescapes. It has rollers too so I can move it around. The seller said it came from an antebellum house there so I like the history too. This is how it looked like when I bought it.

John would not let me paint it. He never lets me paint anything wood because he likes to see the wood grain. So I sanded it and stained it very lightly. The "After" picture is below.

And After

Thanks for taking over the B + A party, Kim. And thank you all for visiting!
