Now That's Better

This is an end table that I found at a nearby estate sale. Nothing was wrong with it & the price was right so it came home with me. After painting it with chalk paint & using dark wax it turned out nice, but it needed something more...
Then I remembered seeing something that I liked. I decided to add a Union Jack flag to the top of it. I was planning to change out the hardware but I like the original stuff. I think the hardware looks prim & proper on it so I think it fits. I'm probably going to sell it since I have no place to put it. My twelve year old wants it badly so I had to make a deal with him.....I'm going to paint his dresser the same way. Of course now I have another project to do...:)
