Before/After Dresser Table

When we lived in Student Housing, people who were moving would take furniture that they didn't want anymore and leave it outside where it was a free for all! I acquired this beauty as well as many other treasures.
I love this table. And my husband asked me to never paint it because it is 'real wood'!!!
Well, when I moved it down to our living room and started storing our board games in it, my husband was all of the sudden very critical of how it didn't match! And much to my dismay, he even tried to get rid of it during a game of 'Bigger or Better' that our church was playing a couple weeks ago.
SO...I thought that was my all clear for Paintin Time! 
This time I decided to Spray Paint. I used Flat Black Spray Paint, then finished it off with Polyurethane Spray. (I really don't like this stuff, I think it is going to be so much easier, until I use it and realize it goes on splotchy...) Oh well. 
Then I was contemplating getting new handles at Hobby Lobby. But I really love these handles, so I chose a Aqua Blue color...was going to do Khaki but wanted to change things up a bit. I also sprayed these with polyurethane after the color coat. 
And Here ya go.
Love the Flat look, and it feels like I have a brand new piece of furniture! 

Sweet handle. Totally my fad color of the year.
P.S. My husband even approves. Smiles all around!
