Just a few more before & after pictures to share. One is a end table that I found at a local thrift store and the 2nd piece is one I'm excited about!  Originally an antique sewing machine base with beautiful wrought iron stand..now turned into a unique table.  The foot base still works, and the wheel still spins...which makes this a great conversation piece...


Pattern or design used: My own design - Urban Iron Art and Newtiques

No, no undercoat on the black wrought iron...usually I just take a hose sprayer to the items, once I get rid of the dirt and cobwebs, they are usually "just right"....

Thanks for the nice comments - much appreciated!
