Careful application of a product called “Rub and Buff” in Silver transformed the table over the course of two hours from the antiqued copper piece that she had brought home from the store into something quite a bit different in both style and reflective quality.
I believe there were probably far better ways to spend two hours, but her delight in the new object cannot be ignored. She admired the table with her two pet animals (a subject for another day) and exclaimed happily, “Shiny! Shiny!”. I may be embellishing a bit; but there was a certain smug satisfaction to her countenance. Annimal likes shiny things.

P.S. Although these observations are not directly related to my field work, I feel obligated to share with you that Annimal begged me to tell my readers who might be inspired to attempt a similar silvery transformation that she purchased the original table at World Markeand the Rub N Buff at Hobby Lobby for $5.15, bringing the total expenses for this project to a hair over $$75. The results, I am told, are comparable to tables selling recently on sites like One Kings Lane for more than $300.
World Market Table: $70
Rub N Buff: $5.15
Total Project Cost: $75.15
Compared To: Silver Leaf Occasional Table $339
Savings Of: $263.85
