Dale's Gettin' Crafty Too!

I saw these two end tables at a garage sale a few months ago (no before picture, sorry), and we finally had a chance to get working on them! Dale and his brother primed them during Thanksgiving, and Dale painted and bought new glass for them this past week.
These tables were $5 each! One had glass already for it, but it had beveled edges, which I didn't like and the other one had none- hence the new glass. And they were just plane jane stained.
I liked the detail on the legs and this scroll-y applique. I think the black paint really lets the details stand out.
Detail of the legs. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to leave it as is, or distress them a little bit. But I am in love with my two new end tables! I'll get a picture of it in our living room soon! Just got the get the Christmas tree out of the way first!
And since Brighton is too short for her pedals on the trike, Dale crafted some new pedals for her!

Way to go Dale! I adore those end tables too! I sooo want to redo mine or replace them. Which ever comes first I don't know. The pedals idea is awesome too. Isn't it great having a handyman?
