Duncan Phyfe drop leaf table that was my Grandmother Verona’s dining table
It’s pretty thrashed. We don’t use it every day, but it is a great table. Can store with the leaves down. And has an extra leaf to make it larger! My grandmother gave away the chairs before I got the table. Go figure.
I thought the easiest way to begin the prep work was to put it on its side
Using white Gesso, I started painting the legs - 2 coats
Upright with the leaf in, I am preparing the top and sides. Taking the time to let it dry.
This garden bench that I can stoop down on my knees to get the lower portions, and then flip it over to sit on to take the stress of my back
First coat taking shape. The window is open for extra air/ventilation
Empty Talenti gelato jars are excellent for paint. I am anxious to paint. No real plan, so we’ll see how it goes!
Happy New Year everyone! I hope for a better 2021 with a vaccine and a new President and Administration! Onward and upward we go towards truth, empathy and fairness. I hope to see our kids and grands this next year! Hope is the word!
