Tiny DropLeaf Table

I picked up this small drop leaf table because I liked the scrolly legs and the way it converts to a slim table after the two leaves are lowered. I knew it needed a make-over and this is the only project that I can recall that sat,
and sat,
and sat in the basement waiting to be loved. I didn't have a need for it until probably four years later when I was looking for a side table for the Green Toile Guest Bedroom. (You should be able to click on the highlighted word and get to the post I am referring to) I went down to the basement and accidentally found this table. Oh joy! Here is what it looked like

Cute huh? But I'm not one to leave furniture as it is. So you guessed it, out came the white paint. After painting and distressing it, I hand painted a leaf and vine design on the top and added a cute bird. Enjoy
