Jeweled Console Table

August 18, 2013

I am excited feature the first furniture piece to come from my collaboration with Leigh, the Furniture Hunter.  I LOVE this piece.  In fact, I want to keep it (but I don’t have room).  You know how it goes!  I love this piece!

I used the custom color that I mixed for Leigh’s sideboard (you can find the recipe and read more about the sideboard here).  I accented with a mix of Young Kansas Wheat, Dover White and Vintage White and applied Dark Aging Cream and Aging Dust all over.The top of the piece is my favorite “dark top” that I’ve done yet. 

I used a mix of 1:1:1 of Virginia Chestnut, Vermont Slate and Beckley Coal and painted that on thickly.  Then I double loaded a dry brush with Virginia Chestnut and a mix of Young Kansas Wheat, Dover White and Vintage White and Dry Brushed.  After that dried, I dry brushed the VA Chestnut mixture again.  I love this top!  I might re-do my own buffet using this combo.I coated the top with CeCe’s new Endurance finish for extra protection and shine.

My mother-in-law brought me these dilapidated waterfall pieces. I prefer some stained wood on a piece when possible so I sanded down the tops and the drawer faces with my orbital sander and stained them using our Cappucinno wood stain.
