Crazy, I know, but this round oak table base used to be painted green. We bought it this way at our neighbor’s garage sale before we closed on our first house. My husband has never understood buying something that you don’t have room for. I do that often and I’m still trying to explain the concept to him. It took about 15 years for me to paint it black. And after looking at these pictures, I can’t imagine why. You had to admit it is so much better black! One can of Krylon spray paint and we were done. Now when I need a green fix, I get out the St. Patrick’s Day postcard placemats!
