You all know that we take some pretty sad pieces of furniture and refurb them to fabulous (or at least so much better than it was in certain cases). So started this tale, antique table, needs love, turns out wonderfully well, WTH (what-the-heck!) happened, OMiGoodness that is so bad, to even-better-than-before lovely!
Isn’t she lovely? White painted legs, stained top and leaves
People have admired her for a few weeks but so far no new home. About a week and a half ago I walked by her and WTH? There was a split all the way across the table and not where the leaves are inserted either! We are just stymied since this has only happened once before in all these years. That piece was from the coast and after a trip to live in the much warmer valley, it, too, developed a split so we knew how to fix it. Bye-bye gorgeous stained table top, though.
The split is repaired but oh, so ugly!
New plan, Miss Sophia’s signature driftwood, barn board, fabulous faux finish! And I helped! (Remember that commercial on tv? If you do, you just pegged yourself as a baby boomer.) My contribution is the APC Beach Glass in the multiple layers of color on the newly redone table top. Miss Sophia thought a lighter blue but I convinced her this would be good and it is.
See what I mean? It looks lovely if I do say so myself
So long story short, the table is even lovelier, the setback became a leap forward and I now have a good idea of how she does this technique! Hurray!
Job well done, Miss Sophia – not once, but twice!
