Finished Country Style End Table

A while back I posted photos for the unfinished country style end table that I had built. With the help of Lucy, the table has been crackle painted and clear coated. In case you are unfamiliar with crackle paint, like I was, it is a method of distressing furniture to make it look weathered. You apply a base coat of paint, apply crackle paint over the base coat, and then apply the top coat. Upon drying the middle layer cracks, revealing the base coat of paint. Here are the pictures:
