Cottage Style Entry Table

October is a great month for garage saleing (not a word except in my world, probably yours too) here in NJ. I found this very old entry table the next town over. So now that I'm finding myself on a bit of an aqua/turquoise kick thanks to all of you :)  I made a little concoction using the oops paint left over from this project which I was back and forth to mosaic or not and now think I shouldn't have, thoughts?? I added a little Prussian Blue, Slate Gray, and Concord Blue to the oops. Kinda kept mixing until I had the blue I was looking for. I have tons of paint hanging around from my decorative painting days and I intend to put it all to good use.

Yes, those are building blocks from my kids younger years. I knew those would come in handy one day.
                       I glazed it with a mix of Delta's Charcoal and Prussian Blue. Here it is along with the mosaic which probably was not meant to be, second guessing myself as usual. I do that ALL the time!

I love it and I love the color, I think the mosaic is great, I wonder what it would look like if you enlarged the mosaic so it took up more of the top???? Now I am second guessing myself LOL

The color of your table is perfect and the mosaic looks wonderful. Wow, you are talented.

I actually have a table just like that just not done up as pretty as yours.

Partying with you. Stop by for a quick visit.
