Brimfield Table Find

I LOVE BRIMFIELD, even if I don't find a thing; sometimes the only thing I buy is lunch!  I've been going for years and I just love the atmosphere - if the weather is good, I can browse for hours.  I was there on the rainy day this year (Friday).

It's challenging in the rain but I did manage to score two tables.  Here's table no. 1
The top was in rough shape but otherwise it was in pretty good condition.  After sanding, I decided to add some interest to the top.  The top & drawer were painted with HM chalk paint using BM's Twilight Zone.  The base was painted with HM chalk paint using Valspar's Perfect Storm and the top was stenciled using the same. The table was lightly distressed and I liked the look of the original hardware.  Fiddes Natural wax protects all but the top, which is protected with Wipe On Poly.
