From Oak to Cloud White

A light sanding, some primer and several light coats of Benjamin Moore Cloud White have freshened this dated little solid oak table.
 I have been searching for small tables as they can be used in so many different places.

The before: solid oak table a neighbour was selling. I picked up a few other items from them and they sold us this table for $10, half the asking price.
Our kitchen table became the work surface in this cold weather. The wall brackets are for my new display shelves that I have decided to move.  The yellow paint is the previous colour and the beige in the corner is our new Benjamin Moore Stonehouse. The yellow wall is now Stonehouse also. When I finish the shelves I will post new photos of this area of our eat in kitchen.

  3. This is really freshened up. I love round tables because they can be tucked almost anywhere.

  5. So you hung your brackets (corbels? What do you call those things?) first? We assembled the entire shelf first, but then had trouble hanging it. Your way probably would have been easier!
