$5.00 thrift store table

I found this table at our local thrift store.  I found it on sale for 1/2 off.  What a steal at $5.00. I wasn't sure what direction I was going with the makeover, but I knew I was using my new favorite homemade chalk paint.  This is what it looked like when I rescued it.

I gave the entire table a coat of white paint.  I let it sit there for a week and kept changing my mind as to what color I wanted to paint.  I thought red, mustard or black.  In the end I decided to go with gray and leave a white stripe on the top and bottom front. 

I'm very happy with the final product.  What do you think?
