French Table

Pin It
For some time I have wanted to try to paint a table with a blue/gray/glazed look.  I love the French look, and this table was just the thing to try it on.


An O.K. looking table, but all of the details are hidden with that dark paint.


Here it is finished, after it got a couple coats of different colored paint, some sanding, glaze and a good coat of Deft.

The colors blended to make the perfect French look.

The glaze brought out the details.

It is gone.  It didn't last long at the last show.  It was fun to do and I'm sure that I'll be giving some other pieces the same type of treatment.

It is so fun to give a piece a new life.
