This little table stayed home.
This little table had cute feet.
This little table had none.
And this little table cried "Wee,wee,wee, why did someone spray paint me!"
Poor little guy! I spotted him on Craig's List last year and knew he had lots of potential. He waited patiently on the Island until I sprung him a couple weeks ago. I wanted to wait until I could give him the attention he deserved.
Here he is getting his first bath.
Close-up of his head.
He begged me not to show pictures of him naked, but I couldn't resist!
Mr. Bliss bought me my very first power tool for this job. An electric sander, called a roto-something-or-other.
It took me days to get all the spray paint off.
Just look at all the detail that black spray paint was hiding!
I stained and poly'ed the top and painted the rest Ralph Lauren Lincolnshire Olive.
Then covered the painted parts with my Minwax stain in Dark Walnut and wiped off. This really showed off all of the gorgeous detail.
Next I added clear paste wax and then went over all of the crevices again with Fiddes & Sons wax in Rugger Brown.
And here he is in his Sunday best.
And in his new spot in the kitchen.
He looks like a Mr. Bingly to me...
A sneak peak at two projects I have in the works:
Can you tell I have a thing for accent tables??
Thanks for visiting and have a Summerlicious weekend!
