Y3 – Day 361 – Dining Table ReDo

Instead of buying a new table, I have decided to upcycle our old wood and black glass wood table.

It took a while to get the painter’s tape straight.


And then I could enjoy the table and painting it. With each stroke of the brush, crawling under the top, swirling color over rounded corners, I invested my energy and the piece spoke back to me. After seven coats of color and washes, I stepped back and allowed the  heavy, strong and well built table to talk to me.


Meanwhile, the painters applied the colors I chose for the accent wall (Sherwin Williams Slate Violet), the adjoining wall (Sherwin Williams China), the trim (white semigloss) and the ceiling (Sherwin Williams Ibis White).IMG_0460

I was trying to match the finish to the bureau I tackled a few weeks ago. And I believe I accomplished that. It took another gray wash and a final two coats of shimmer semi gloss white. Notice the bureau in the mirror. I can’t wait to really stage it, add wall art and dine in our new dining room.
