This is the tale of a sad little table. So sad that nobody wanted it. Except me - I saw potential...plus side tables are needed at Casa Vagabond de Junky.
It was dirty and in serious need of sanding
It was missing some detail
It had a broken foot
And was in need of a little gluing
But...it was made in the good ole U.S.A, and is solid mahogany.
|half waxed - the wax deepens the color of the wood and brings out the grain|
In the end, painting over the whole top seemed wrong. But highlighting the claw feet and detail on top was just the right touch
I'm keeping my options open on this one. A design might appear one day on it, but for now the silver highlights strike the right note. Too bad the same can't be said for my hair. Sigh.
