more table-age for sale!

i painted this sweet little 60's (or 50's maybe?) table with a funky-fresh pattern. you likey?

*   *   *

my mom got this table for me, because she knew i'd like the shape and legs, but i just decided the regular wood stain color was a little drab for me (though it was in superb condition). i came across this pattern somewhere along the way, and with a desire to use this weird orange-red color with white stuck in my brain (no idea why, we'll thank baby jesus for it), i decided to combine all my ideas into one little project!

behold - my newest hand-painted table creation! i really love it. i kind of want to keep it for myself. i sold my last table (the mustard-colored one with the octopus on the side) within a few hours of posting it, so maybe i don't need to get attached to this guy.

i am asking 150.00 for it. it's in really great shape, and the entire pattern was painstakingly sketched and hand-painted by your's truly while watching michael jackson coverage. funny how stuff like that sticks in your head. a lot of times i associate jobs with the things i think about while i am painting. anyway, i digress.

the painting/pattern is not perfect, but if it were, you could've bought it at target or something. you can see lines of where i painted it on, and there were several layers painted on to achieve the bright color that you see here. i sanded, primed, painted and polyurethaned it to perfection. 

i don't plan on painting this pattern again ('twas difficult!), so if you like, and are interested, please email me at buyer is responsible for shipping charges (should only be around 30.00 for UPS) or pick-up as well. it's very light!

as you can see, there is a small amount of damage to the wooden legs, but it is not very noticeable...after all, it was made in the 50's or 60's!
