Not sure I understand you comment regarding the handrail? It is visible in the picture and nothing has been removed.

The knobs seem to be controversial (if that is even a possibility for something as mundane as a drawer knob). But, it's all good, because I adore them, as do my husband and two boys and that's what matters most. ;)

The paragraph wasn't for B & A. I fully know there are haters of painted furniture out there, but I take my chances and post what I like. If you refer back to my original blog post, I gave the same explanation for why it was painted. Part of the reason is because I paint and sell furniture and I wanted to explain to my readers why I paint some pieces and don't paint others (my post today shares a desk I left as is). Also, for those readers who follow me on fb, I had initially said that I was not going to paint.

Sorry, but going to have to completely disagree with you on that one. As you can see I did refinish the drawer front and if you go back to my original post on my blog you will see that I actually shared another, similar end table at the same time. That one, was predominately refinished, with just white legs. I paint (and sell) a considerable amount of furniture & there are very few things more difficult than getting a solid and pristine white painted finish. It actually would have been significantly easier to restore both pieces. Except, I didn't want to because I love to paint furniture and I think it adds much more to a space than a room filled with stained pieces. It's really all about personal preference and less about being lazy. ;)

Thank you for the sweet comments! This was a fun piece to work on. You can see more on my blog (including another MCM table that I finished at the same time) here: http://numberfiftythree.blogspot.com/2014/05/painted-stained-mid-century-end-tables.html
