Having used the Cacao Payraud advertisement many times now, I thought I would try something new - so I spent a pleasant hour or so trawling through the Graphics Fairy images and came up with this one.
As usual my very clever, steady handed daughter Laura painted on the graphic, whilst I did the painting, staining & waxing. With this one I thought I would give the top a darker stain as the pine was a very orange colour, which isn't my favorite shade of wood colour! I tried a walnut colour and I am pleased with the result as it does give an 'old' look.
I painted the legs with some 'Old Fashioned Milk Paint' that I had - I mixed Sea Green with Snow White and it came out this gorgeous Duck Egg colour - I then waxed it with clear wax and the finish is very smooth and very tough. In fact the toughness was tested well and truely when my old french doors I use a a back drop for some of my photos came crashing down straight onto my freshley waxed table legs! to my amazement there was not a mark to be seen!
So looking forward to the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint arriving, I have projects waiting and I'm itching to get started!
Bye for now
