So we’ll continue our furniture world tour with a little French end table I worked on for the Rose Bowl.
This was another find from the End Table Nirvana (yes, I’m still working my way through that amazing furniture haul!).
She had tossed this little guy in at the last minute for free “because it’s broken.”
So, as usual, it was time for sanding, glue, bondo and clamps (always clamps!)
The next step was to distress it a little but I was in a bit of a bad mood and got a kinda carried away. The final result was not as much “distressed” as it was “traumatized” but I didn’t have time to go back in and repaint.
I decided it needed a little help from the Graphics Fairy and did a little mixing and matching with these labels that she so generously provides.
Once I got them (re)arranged and reversed I went to town with my Blender Pen method.
A nice coating of wax and I was all done and it was time for pictures.
I feel that lemons should always be stored on the lower shelf of a table in the hallway near the bathroom where the light is better. Don’t you? It’s a great spot for your vintage camera collection too. Just a little FYI from me to you.
I’m happy to report that this one sold at the Rose Bowl! And considering it was free and the paint was leftover – the overhead on this one was just printer ink, blender pen, a knob and time! Yay!
