Yesterday was our first day back to work after holidays and it was not pretty. It takes work getting back into the swing of things on a normal day but, the air conditioner conked out at my job. We are on the second floor in a goldfish bowl of non-opening windows and I wear a mask at work. It was do or die I tell ya. It was 87 freakin degrees in there plus humidity.
Patients were probably watching sweat roll off my head for entertainment. Not pretty.
Onto the fun stuff.
I love how the photos of this table turned out.
This setup is one of my favourites yet. Almost overshadows the table itself.
This was your standard run of the mill boring provincial table with no flair.
The one large drawer actually had 2 handles on it to give the illusion of a double drawer but made it look rather clunky. Out came the wood filler and I think I achieved a much cleaner look.
This table was finished in Annie Sloan Chateau Grey and then I used General Finishes Van Dyke Brown glaze. This was my first stab at this glaze and I enjoyed the use and the finish it gives. You do have to work fast and in small sections or it will dry up into a globby dark mess.
i added a very simple antique brass hutch handle that adds a simple touch to the
front of the drawer
obviously i had already filled the drawer and flipped it for painting but you get the idea. plus my cooler and wine empties in the background. jeesh it must be summer or something.
Have a great Tuesday,
I hope mine is little less hot than my Monday.
