Here's another piece I just finished...
We've all seen these….
the sides fold up to simulate a tray.
My friend, Frances, gave me this one,
but it had lots of water damage on the
veneer. It was buckled all around the edges,
so I used a scraper to got it off as best I could.
I primed, and then I puttied
all the lovely gouges that I put in the wood.
That's okay, though.
It's R U S T I C.
Here it is sanded and painted
in Annie Sloan Old White.
I decided to add a little "eye candy"
as a distraction, so I used painter's tape
and taped off lines in the center.
I painted these in Greek Blue.
Here it is after I removed the tape.
Next, I distress sanded...
Then waxed with clear and dark waxes.
I think it's rather sweet.
In my booth at Greenwood Antiques.
Looks great with this pair of wingbacks...
still available @ $900/pair.
