I’ve got a little table which I think is just the bees knees.  Can you see it in a nursery? or family room or bedside?

Round Table

I think often times these tables are made too cute, too blue, or too white and chippy, and then they just end up looking way too colonial.

So I think it’s important to keep it neutral.    I’ve been working the paint colors to find the right shade.

Yes that’s fascinating mom, but I see you’re wearing your socks which means we’ll be going places…

So I looked at them in different light and am leaning towards

maybe with a bit more wax, we’ll see.  This table will work up quite nicely and quietly neutral with crusty old books….

You are on to something, this table would be great in a soft neutral. I saw a similar table at Goodwill this past week but I had not vision of what it could look like until reading your post.
Thanks for the inspiration.

I almost forgot to say how much I love your picture of your socks and the dog’s nose. Both made me smile.
