small round table

Since its Monday and I was feeling pretty yucky over the weekend...I thought I would show you a little project I did a couple of weeks ago. It was just a yucky old table from Goodwill. I loved the design in the top. I had originally thought about stripping the top and sanding but once I started I saw that the inlay was very very thin and wouldn't be able to handle it.


So I primed it instead.



I loved that even through the priming the inlay showed. So I was hoping that
when I painted it would show through too.. It did but I had to glaze it to get it to pop.



Sorry for the bad pics, but it was getting dark and getting a shot of the top was proving difficult.
I messed around with the saturation on the pic so you could see that the inlay still popped with the glaze.



Here is her actual color. She is an antique white with a dark glaze.
I hope you have a BEAUTIFUL day!

This turned out great. Who would have thought you would have been able to save the inlay? You are having a lot of fun, aren't you? Keep doing what you love!
