Sew, What do you think?

Sew i mentioned while we were snowed in i worked on a few pieces of furniture, one of which was the sewing table i scored at the Thrift store for $4.40! Yes i am telling you how much right down to the dime, cause i can't believe i got it for that for cheap! Here is a picture of when i brought the lil guy home.
It now lives here, next to our front door
(sorry my pics are so blurry, i've gotta work on that!)
I was gonna paint it one of my oops paint colors but i painted the vanity two of the colors and i was left with an off white color, which is just too light for our living room (all the furniture is wood or brown.) so i went with Flagstone by Martha Stewart but i had the guys at lowes make up the color in an Olympic paint.  I decided to paint my Craft Room Flagstone as well.
I also picked up this beauty, i have never had my own brand new brush. I treat it like a child and get every little bit of paint off (using these tips from Katie at Bower Power) when i'm done. O the little things that can make you sew happy!

I used the same technique that i've used on almost every piece of furniture i've done :) Sand, prime, paint, stain, distress.
Then i distressed it
The finished project
I realized i said sew instead of so but i thought it was fitting for this post.
