The JTS bought the Angel Table at an auction. I don’t remember how much he paid for the table because it’s been sitting in the workshop for a few months.
The table has an Angel detail on the top front of the iron base. Sorry to say I’m not a fan of putting Angels and furniture together.
The iron Angel applique was easy to remove from the table base. The only problem is there was a small gap (one inch) where the two pieces of rounded iron met at the top. I wasn’t a fan of that either. I searched the shop over for something to replace the Angel….no luck. I was more fond of the Angel than the gap so the Angel went back on the table.
This is how the table looked before makeover.
There was a big gap running across a big part of the table top and the JTS filled it with wood filler.
I sanded the filler smooth and started painting the top with Beyond Paint in off-white.
Then I dry-brushed the base. I wasn’t going to paint the base at all but the dark iron was too stark against the white table top.
Next I applied Caromal Colours Toner with a brush.
Then wiped it back with a damp rag. The toner gives the paint an antiqued look.. I use this product a lot.
Never hurts to do a little distressing.
I have to say the Angel looks really nice. Does anyone recognize the plant “container”? Yes, it’s an Amazon shipping box. Those things are awfully handy. How about the cricket container. I got it at My Favorite Junk Shop. You guys would be so jealous of the junk shop. I wish I could take each and everyone of you junk shopping with me.
I painted the table the first part of October, took it to the shop, and it's sold. I guess the Angel Table turned out pretty well.
If you like this table you need to see my table made from an aquarium stand....Wood And Metal Sofa Table.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for and you guys are on the list.
The JTS and I will have Thanksgiving lunch here at our house with our son, daughter-in-law and the two oh-so-awesome granddaughters. Then I plan to get my Christmas stuff out and start decorating. I notice some of my friends and bloggers have already decorated for Christmas. Not me. I hope to finish the decorating over the weekend.
On Monday I head to Arkansas and my parents house to spend a week or so visiting and helping Dad. Don’t worry though, I have a few projects finished up and I’ll try to have posts scheduled before I leave town. Wouldn’t want you guys to miss your daily dose of DIY….and craziness.
That’s it. Have a great day, a food filled Thanksgiving, and a relaxing holiday weekend. I would love to hear your Thanksgiving plans. Share if you feel like it. Comment section is below. Love you guys!
