But it is at least 4 tables in one.
|Coffee Table #1!|
Laurie and I picked this up at an estate sale a couple of months ago and I painted it for OUR estate sale.
It was charming, but a little beat up.
I wanted to paint it fancy-like, but didn't want the pressure of trying to get it perfect.
Actually, perfect is perfect. What sucks is not being able to DO perfect.
So I generally try to accomplish deliberately IMperfect.
I used my Powder River Lakota White (2 coats) over the entire table(s). Then I used Powder River Silverado as a wash on everything except the top. The top I painted solid Silverado and then sanded back to show some of the Lakota White.
|Coffee Table #2 with Side Tables!|
I accented the recessed areas in the trim area with a silver acrylic paint. All the edges of the table and the horizontal bands on the sides were coated with Viva Inka Gold in silver - a product which I really loved by the way. It is a combination of metallic paint and natural bees wax. The directions say to apply with a rag, but I liked using my fingers. The warmth of my finger made the product easier to apply.
|Coffee Table #3!|
|Coffee Table #4!|
The entire piece was waxed with Miss Mustard Seed Furniture Wax. All the sanding I did on the top surface made the top hard and smooth like glass. Don't forget - you can learn more or purchase Powder River Paint here. You can purchase Miss Mustard Seed paints and waxes here.
My Brazilian "buyer" also bought a side table painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperors Silk. I hope she enjoys her American made and hand painted furniture! Maybe I'll get Brazilian famous!
