Have a Merry Christmas! I took a few days off of painting, but have a few projects to post that were finished recently. And then the hubs and I did some awesome updates around the house today. What I’m saying is… stay tuned for lots of great posts.
Another beast of a coffee table. This one was lookin’ a little rough before. But I wanted to get started on it with hopes to finish in the early stages of all the custom work.
Here is a before pic. (See my Cooper boy hanging out with me?!) This coffee table is a big boy!! So much storage space though! And it’s on casters so it would be so great for a living room where kids can play and color and then put it all in the drawers.
I decided on ASCP Duck Egg because I love this color and it looks awesome with the dark glaze. Since there is a paneling effect on top of the table, I wanted to make that stand out and looks worn.
Duck Egg is also fab because one coat gives fantastic coverage. Then comes the all-important, though time consuming and tiring, application of the clear wax. After letting that dry, I used my new sanding sponge to rough it up a little. I focused on the edges and drawers, where natural wear would show.
Then the fun part: glaze! Although this part also takes a while, I love watching the transformation. I detailed how to use the glaze on my post about the Florence end table here if you want to learn. It’s easy and gives such rich patina to a piece.
How awesome does it look now?! Love.
I spray painted all the knobs in Rust-oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze and reattached after applying a final coat of clear wax.
I especially love the wear around the drawers. :)
And the planking on the top and sides.
This ended up with a client already! Lucky.
Although it looked awesome in our living room. Hopefully we will find another like it. :)
