This is orphan No. 2
Like the first table - Orphan No. 1, I found this when I was out walking with Fifi. Here's some of the 'before' pictures. A bit of repair work first!
A lot of damage to the veneer on the top and cracked edges...
So I needed to do quite a bit of sanding and filling before I started with paint. I decided to use Cream and Old White. I love the way the paint looks before wax - looks like a snow covered pie top table now.
I then started to sand some of the surfaces to bring out the curves.
I wanted to add some design to this table and printed a VERY primitive heart on the bottom shelf using gold paint. I repainted over using cream and then sanded the paint away.
A really nice effect I'd like to do more work with.
When the clear wax is added, the cream, white and golden brown of the wood blend into a great finish.
The cream turns a more buttery yellow.
Cute little table now - just needs a new home :-)
