The before picture was taken with a phone camera (not great quality). This is an "Ethan Allen" maple hutch with brass knobs.
I painted "Mae" a soft blue/green, distressed the finish and added white porcelain knobs.
This is a sofa table that was in my living room. When I first purchased the piece years ago, it had a light pine finish. I painted it black to make it feel a little more formal. I never felt like this table looked finished.
I painted the piece red and then distressed it. I was not going to go as far as I did, but when sanding the pine showed through and I liked the look. I kept sanding and glazing until the piece felt finished. Sometimes you don't know how the end product is going to turn out until it's done.
I am anxious to show more of my finished work. I am excited to start selling my pieces, that's why I have named them.
Also when I get my own camera, I can take more photos with different angles and close ups.
"Sadie" before her makeover. I'll show her finished in a few days.
