I re-loved this table with a nautical approach. The table is wood. It is sturdy. Combining three different Dixie Belle colors, I tried to create a water effect. The stenciling was done using a few gilding waxes; they are a bit raised to stand out. The nautical stenciling is very cool and creates the center for this piece. The top is clear coated in a matte finish. Nice space saver and home accent piece; tilt it down for stowing to save space but it shows very nicely while not in use. The table top measures 32.75" square and 28" 27 1/2 inches tall. The bottom base is 20" square. While in stowing position measures 46" tall.
