It always works out in the end....I just needed a little patience!

I painted this drop leaf end table specifically to go into a customer's room.  When I sealed the top, it crackled, turned yellowish, some paint lifted and it was a mess.  The rest of the table was fine.  

I swore a bit, teared up and then put on my "big girl panties" and sanded the top.  I decided to make a little change to it...


I painted the top green, rather than cream, and painted similar stripes...


...and the MacKenzie-Childs Parchment knobs couldn't be any cuter!

As much as I hate to "start over" on a project, this was well worth it!
