I love it when all you have to do is paint – no repair work, re-fininshing, replacing hardware, etc. needed!! I have been working on all three, but was anxious to finish the drum table first, as it’s my favourite.
I decided to paint over the leather inlay (gasp!), because it had an ornate gold pattern around the edge which I did not care for. I gave the surface three light coats of graphite, sanded it and then went over the top with dark wax. I also used three coats of polycrylic in a satin finish to protect it.
I really like the two colours together!I love how the dark wax sinks into the crevices to really give it an aged look. I applied the dark wax in small sections with a brush, then used clear wax on a cut up pillow case to wipe away any excess dark wax I did not want. Her sisters will be finished soon!
She is for sale in the showroom.
