I painted this primitive table in CeCe Caldwell’s all natural Georgia Clay and sealed it with dark wax.
I stripped and refinished the top to clean it up yet chose to leave the dings and marks that tell the story and create the character of an old piece like this. I’m capable of making pieces look brand new, but that’s not the look I’m usually after. Anyone can go to a furniture store and buy something right off the assembly line. That’s not the look I’m going for.
I really wanted to celebrate the charm of this older piece so I went straight over the paint with dark wax to really age the fresh coat of paint. I love how it turned out.
See how the dark wax pops all the texture and details of the paint? LOVE
I love this table. There’s something that makes it feel really special to me. It’s not just any old accent table, it’s a piece of art because of how it was designed and all the years of love that went into making it what it is today.
