My table won at the county fair! The fair was a good incentive to finish it in time. So I entered it in the 'decorative painting' category, expecting a 1st ($3), 2nd ($2), or 3rd ($1) ribbon, and we came later in the week to see it in the "Best of Show" section! I won a 1st place ribbon, a "Best of Show" rosette, a plaque, and $25 (which I promptly spent on shoes)! I'm glad to be done, and for the table to be a finished addition to our home for as long as we live. I hope when I die, my grandkids are all fighting for who gets to keep "grandma's table".
