An Antique Inlaid Coffee Table

Goodness, I just adore this antique c.1930 coffee table. It's so so SO handsome. It has straight legs, a cross stretcher and ornate pierced knee brackets, classic chinoiserie, incredibly elegant. The top is perfectly inlaid and in lovely condition. I refinished the top to brighten it up a bit and really let all the inlay show to its best advantage. I painted the base in a custom mixed pale green I've named 'Sweet Celadon', lightly distressed, and sealed with dark wax. The top is so smooth, and sealed with about seven coats of oil based poly, you never need to worry about using coasters with this beauty!!
