I've had this goooorgeous shade of dark dramatic eggplant paint for a while now, just dying to try it on something. Believe it or not, this the first time I've ever painted something any shade of purple. This is a wonderful pair of antique solid maple side tables, and I thought I little dose of elegant drama was just what the doctor ordered. I sanded, stained, and sealed the tops, which are so pretty. I wish I had a spot for these in my house but alas, try as I might, I can't keep everything!
