I’ve been eager to get to work on some new furniture projects but have been a little stuck. Since I lost my spot at the Rose Bowl I don’t really have an outlet for my furniture.
However, my coasters, trays, signs etc are sold locally in a fantastic store called CoOP 28 run by the terrific Marci.
Recently Marci and I were talking about display and she offered me a prime spot for my trays and suggested I could come up with a little table for them. Perfect! I got right to work.
I’d inherited a sofa table quite a while ago…well, I had inherited thelegs the top had decamped at some point (how does that happen?). In a burst of creativity I’d cut a new top for it mimicking the curve of the apron…..
…….and then stuck it in the back of the garage and forgot about it.
I dragged it out and cleaned it up and gave it a quick top coat with some leftover ceiling paint (I needed flat paint for what I had in mind).
I knew I wanted a graphic on top but I didn’t want anything too busy or distracting.
Blender Pen to the Rescue!
I’ve used a blender pen many times before (check out the link for more detailed instructions) but here is quick recap of blender pen technique using images from another table:
The paste wax adds some depth and a nice shine.
Now I’m off to bring to the store.
