A few weeks ago I had a friend give me this little table.
I looked at it for a while and it popped in my head that it looks a lot like the detailed and etched silver platters on the wall of my dining room. I wanted that look of shiny but still a patina in spots. I started by securing the wobbly legs with glue and braces (which sounds SO much easier than it was) then sanding the top really smooth. I gave it a coat of Shabby Paints Americana, and hand drew a design with a very thin brush in Garfield Gray.
I sanded the design smooth with 400 grit sandpaper then added a coat of diluted Stunning Silver and topped the whole thing off with Black ReVAX.
What do you think of the little silver table? I am certain she will find her new home soon.
