You should be.
they are spots.
The picture at the top is of my Aunt a long time ago( She’s 88 now). I think she is sporting the height of outdoor fashion. That’s her daughter in the car with the silly spotted shorts. That photo always gives me a laugh. I couldn’t stop with just this picture though, not when I have a spotted dog.

This is the hall tree that stood in the foyer of the house my husband grew up in. It was his mom’s and it was her mom’s before that.
When we started dating it was an “antiqued” finish that was green with varnish over it that made it look old. Then his mom painted it bright blue. You can see the colors when you open up the seat.
I always admired it so after we bought our first house she gave it to me. It looked quite different than it does now. It was early american looking with wide molding at the top and some angular coat hooks that were in my opinion, rather unattractive. I don’t have photos of the before unfortunately.
Removing the molding at the top and replacing the coat hooks made such a huge difference. Now it has a more arts and crafts look to it. Much simpler. Much more to my taste.
I love that it has been in three generations already and I have already promised it to my youngest son when he gets his first house.
Hopefully he won’t refinish it by adding molding at the top and painting it blue. But you never know..
