Finally painted my little DT birds white.  I like them so much better.  This is a very old table belonging to my paternal grandmother.  I stenciled the ivy on years ago, and am planning to give it a makeover. I'm trying to decide what color to paint it then I plan to distress it and glaze it.  I've never done any distressing or glazing and am not a good painter, but I'm thinking I will give it a try.  We'll see.

Am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.  Come on over and join the party!!  She's a terrific host!
