Finally! I got some pictures taken of the finished tables I've been talking about. The first one, is a round drop leaf table. It already had really great wood grain and some natural distressing, so I decided to keep that look. I stenciled "Itadakimasu" on the top, which is japanese for "Let's Eat". Lately I've really been drawn to the style of paint on wood, that still shows the wood. I think it's so different! After stenciling in a blue-grey, I washed the entire piece in a grey paint before sealing it with a few coats of satin clearcoat. Here it is before:
And here is the after:
I love how it came out. I like that you can see it's age and history, but has some fresh additions. This table is for sale!
