I changed the pink arms to blue and yellow, I think it blended better.  Several coats of polycrylic later and its finished.
Primed and ready.
I started painting with acrylic.
My cat Scoots was checking on my progress.
This is the back.

I found this side table at a thrift store for a couple of dollars.  It was already half primed with white paint so I primed the whole thing and painted a funky, whimsical picture on it.  My story of moving from the city to the country.  Although I probably could have done a distressed look I  went with bold colors.  As you will probably find out in weeks to come, I moved into a smaller house and had virtually no furniture so I was junk hunting for anything that didn't cost a thing.  I'll eventually post how my rooms came out with furniture.  Those were my projects all summer!

I love your style! I did craft/art shows for about 15 years. I know the butterfly tummy and all. BUT your work is outstanding. I just know you will do great. Good luck and show us more.
