"A tale of a tossed and tattered table"
|I knew this table had so much potential, just look at |
all the details and
those beautifully shaped legs!
It would be some work but I had to bring her back!
|layer by layer I removed the old veneer and then sanded the table top|
|I then mixed the perfect shade of turquoise that would bring out those |
beautiful legs and scrolling detail perfectly!
Just love how my assistant participated as I worked?? ;)
|I found the perfect stencil that kinda resembled the carved scrolling on the table|
and applied it to the top beginning in the middle and working my way
out towards the edges. Keep your stencil very clean while working
to avoid making mistakes.
|I totally forgot to get photos of this next step but as you can see I lightly distressed the|
legs and the stenciled top just every so slightly with fine sand
paper I then applied stain to the top.
|And here she is all restored looking better than she has ever looked!|
This project was done back in 2012 when I started my etsy store and all my other internet sites and this was when I first made the decision to dive in and follow my artistic and creative heart on a full time basis-so this one is particularly near and dear to me. I guess you could say she was the vision for what and where I wanted my branding to go she is simplistic beauty in all her glory.
I hope to keep bringing you interesting projects and adventures. See ya next time, keep those colors and creative juices a flowin!
