Primitive Side Table Makeover

I have had this little table for a long time now.  Since it no longer fit in with my current decor it was banned to my “tornado” room (tornado because it usually looks like one hit) and has been a nice little catch all.  Well its time to give it a little makeover.  I cleared it off, gave it a nice little sanding, and painted it black.  Black is pretty much the basic base color for just about every primitive style piece of furniture, but I didn’t need to tell you that, you’ve most likely already been primified.  Now I chose a nice cream color.  I chose this color because I’m wanting to paint my kitchen cabinets this color and I wanted to give it a test run,  I didn’t want to do an entire kitchen and absolutely hate it, so I’m using this table as my tester.  So after the top color was applied and had time to dry I gave it a nice sanding,  really giving it some great distressed character.  Then the grand finale is the Briwax coating on the top.  That really is the secret to getting a geat look.   Well I have to say I am very happy with the way the table came out.  I love the look and I’m convinced that my kitchen cabinets need to be this color despite my hubbs hesitation.  What do you all think?  Yay or Nay?  Let me know in the comments.
