Happy Mother’s Day dear lovelies!,
It’s actually the day before Mother’s Day, as I write yet another spell-binding post, chronicling the life of a scavenger/furniture painter.
My back’s on ice and I’m pretending my diet Pepsi is a Mai Tai. Not easy.
Several months ago, in fact, before Christmas, someone brought two table bases to the shop. Identical, old, small table bases, covered in multiple layers of lead paint.
Just precious table bases, that needed to be stripped, in the worst way.
But, since I swore that I would never strip another piece of furniture, as long as I lived, Mr. Winderful stepped up to the plate.
I don’t know if anyone will mistake these table tops as the real deal, but this would be a sweet kitchen table!
I started with a warm gray and once dry, applied clear wax generously. While the wax was still wet, I applied a cream color, with a rag, to the table top, working in sections.
After I blended the paint and wax, I used a mocha brown, here and there, to warm things up. What do you think?
Hope you really enjoy tomorrow. Continued blessings, throughout the week!
