" Tavolino Prima e Dopo"
Before and After

Another beautiful piece that I worked on not long ago. And it's going to Phoenix AZ to a lovely customer.

I chose this applique for the front of the table.
(Applique available on my etsy)

Love the shape of this table that I purchased in Old Town Temecula at Granny's.


So after having my Deano spray it White. It needed something else. Don't you think?

I used my aqua paint and just painted the top and legs of the table. But the aqua looks too new to me.


A coat of minwax stain and I got the look that I was looking for.


Un tavolinetto Stupendo!

  7. Wow, Rita - you certainly know how to "vintage-up" furniture, girl! I'm always so nervous about pulling out any stain, and now I know that it truly adds depth, character and beautiful age to a piece. Thanks for sharing this! You did a wonderful job on it! :)

  11. E' così dolce e pieno di carattere allo stesso tempo!
    Mi piace tanto la scelta del color acqua, così fresco (e uno dei miei preferiti) e la patina che hai voluto creare.
    Bello bello
