Something from nothing.
I did not really make this from "nothing"
but it has a story.
The legs, once white, were sitting
under the back deck at The Cottage.
I inquired and they belonged to some
of the great ladies there...not yet in use.
Nice shaped iron + paint= fab base
Now the top.
This is my final weathered technique.
It was a blonde wood with
stenciled pineapples...a la 80's.
Yes again no before pics.
I get to excited to transform it all.
I removed the base
(going to use on a great door I scored and build a table).
I was closely looking at a table top
on a farm table in The Cottage.
What made it look so cool?
Old stain, old paint, lots of use.
I can do that!
SO here is my process for the wood:
- Sand...be messy, do not remove everything.
- Stain. I use a dark walnut stain.
- Dry brush with AS Country grey in a random pattern.
- Sand again, leaving paint in different places.
- Stain again and wipe off.
- Wax with AS clear wax for protection and even better patina.
The chairs are another story!
Gotta love these lines.
I have four for this table.
All the arms tuck neatly under the table top.
A few seasonal goodies.
