I found this table earlier in the Fall a the Kane County Flea Market. It as one of those things that sat until I was inspired... It' s probably mid- 1940's 50's? It know it's soild wood, it was heavy!
Can you tell I paint in my house in the winter? I've found 15 below in an unheated garage is no fun and does not help me to feel very creative.
Did you know I always, if possible, try to paint my furniture first upside down?
It helps to get all of those little spots you tend to miss when it's right side up...
After a sanding a good coat of primer.
After it went right side up to get the top.... It went upside down again when I did the red.. it took almost 5 coats! Many times I use tinted primer, but I didn't have any. With dark colors, it really cuts down on paint coats. ...
And art work added...
I thought needed some gold swirls and leaves. I went over the Gold with Burnt Umber for dimension
and then aged it. A few coats of sealer and it was ready to go to a new home.
Have a great week end! I need to get some red paint off of my floor!
Thank goodness for laminate!
