I hauled home this coffee table eons and forever ago....I loved the curvy details and the defined parts of it..its was bea-u-ti-ful to me..
I had brilliant grand plans to get a mirror cut for the top, but well..sometimes never happens and that mirror idea never happened..instead this did:
I stripped the top and used graphite chalk paint on the legs and skirt...For the frame, I painted it with yellow, then turquoise latex..and finally, soft white chalk paint overtop....distressed and sanded to bring those colors thru and to shab up the whole damn thing. A lil bit of clear wax, slabbed on some dark wax, then a little bit of poly for the big finish.
She turned out to be a beaut....and was sold the same day I finished her, headed to Grand Prairie to live happily ever after...much to the disapointment of the 6 other people that wanted her too.
I have a bit of a backlog with blog posts of finished pieces and ramblings....Ive been productive.
Please, Patience Daniel-son.
