It's one of those cool old tall oval six leg tables that I am so in love with.
But, was it too far gone for a second life?
|As shown in my Diamonds In The Rough! post, week 18.|
Thanks to wood glue and clamps, wood putty and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Wax she was salvageable. Here I used the Paris Grey which is more like a Blue-Grey to me. Old White was used for the edges. I used a very old German Hymnal for the top. She is a beauty now...and I just can't let her go, not just yet.
And she is perfect for my other guest bedroom since I have the ceiling painted a soft blue, blue-grey bedding and some blue and yellow accents.
NOTE: Lots of people want to know what I put on top to protect the graphics. After decoupaging the pages on top, I give it two good coats of Polycrylic (a water based non-yellowing sealer). This will protect it well. Make sure each coat is completely dry before applying the next.
NOTE: You should be able to click on most of the pictures to enlarge to see further details.
