Side table ~ AFTER. With crackle glaze and weathered detailing. Hot!
Coffee table ~ AFTER.
Sofa table ~ AFTER. Perched behind the sofa giving new zest to family room.
Detail. Hardware was pulled from garage sale dresser (thatll be refashioned later!) and was PERFECT for this project. Gave the pieces a more substantial/old-world feel. Details include a darker paint rubbed into (then off) of corners and grooves of tables.
The three tables: Sofa, Coffee, Side ~ BEFORE.

Gadora commissioned a piece for Shoe String Interiors, outside of Ft. Worth, Tx. The three pieces needed to match, not be too dainty and speak to the new homeowner who was to pair them with a chocolate leather sofa and chair. All pieces were sanded, original knobs removed, holes filled, painted with base coat (chocolate), painted with crackle glaze, painted with top coat (butter), then sanded, details added like brass hardware and emphasis on grooves and corners, and coated with a polyurethane sealer. (All coats were allowed to dry before next applied). The homeowner LOVES them. They look great in her old-world setting.
