This was our kitchen table. It has been with me for many years. It served as a desk/art table in college, a bead table in NC, and has been our kitchen table for the past 3 years. This poor table has been painted on, drawn on, stained by red construction paper (milk spill), stabbed by forks (so many times I couldn't even dream of counting), and every type of food spill you can imagine has happened. I once used nail polish remover to get nail polish off and went a bit crazy when I realized it took off permanent marker (later realized it took off the stain of the table). To say it nicely, it has been well loved:)
I have been wanting to cover it with metal (love that look restoration hardware). But thought a quick paint job would be super easy. I am sure I should have sanded it. I actually started to but I lifted my arms that same day and man were they sore. So I threw some paint on and it has been non stop fun ever since!
I think every one should do it!

What will you do?
