03 Nov Hand Painted Clock Table Transformation at Knick of Time
When she contacted me to write a guest post for her, I just was just finishing a hand painted clock table!
Just over a year ago, my sister Cathy and I started refinishing furniture. It only seemed natural for us to tackle something like this after growing up in a house with a dad who spent every night in the workshop. We lost him years ago now but are still proud to be following in his footsteps.
I thought I shot a before photo, but it seems to have vanished among the thousands of other original photos I have stored on my computer. Basically, it was stained a dark reddish-brown. My first coat was a thin layer of CeCe Caldwell’s Virginia Chestnut. I applied that to the legs and to the perimeter of the top. Sorry these pictures are so dark and gray but it was a super dreary rainy day the day I painted this.
