It was where we confessed our criminal activity for the day hoping for reprieves.
It was where we sobbed over best friends who left us behind.
It was where love was given disguised as delicious food.
The kitchen table was the center of our universe.
When I found this forties kitchen table painted in layers of paint missing its drop leaves, I knew it held a secret.
I had to dig down through the layers to reveal the beauty underneath.
Using a hand sander with medium grit paper, I powered through a white layer, a barn red layer, a brown layer, and a blue layer.
To reveal the original green layer with the fruit and flower paintings.
No, I did not go any further.
I thought the beauty of this table was in the decades of patina built by many hands.
So look closely and enjoy.
The secrets kitchen tables could tell if only we had the time and patience to find them.
