I realized I didn't have a before pic of this guy until I started on the leg. This shot reminds me, I need to get that trim painted. Oh, and you can see part of my dark (in need of paint) cabinets.
Supplies I had on hand for the job.
Here they are all painted up. They are two different colors. It decided to rain today when I needed to take pictures so it was difficult. I don't normally have tables on my hearth but it was where the best light was since I have skylights in there. But they also give me shadows.
This one is taller and I used a silvery blue on it. I had a quart of it and I'm not sure why I never used it. I rather like this color. I gave it two coats. Then used some burnt umber and glaze mixed together and put it on are the little appliques then wiped off leaving it just in the nooks. I also put some glaze mix on the edges that I sanded a bit.
Then I used some white glaze on top of the applique so that they stood out more. There is one above each leg. This one will go at the end of the hall.
This little guy got paint with what was left of a sample of some BM paint. I had about half of one of those little jars and I had just enough. Could of used a tad more but I made it work. I'll put him next to the couch in the family room.
Can you see the difference in the colors of the paint? Darn those shadows!
Instead of the burnt umber I used just the white glaze on this one. No sanding, just got it into all those little grooves. I know it's hard to tell. It did give it a nice sheen and a bit of a white washed look. If you make it bigger it might be easier to see.
A little more life into some beat up old tables. I have more tables to do. I'm thinking white.
