I have soooooo many redesigns in the works. I'll be sharing along the way. Here are a couple before and afters.
This table already had a rather substantial presence, so I kept the redesign subtle.
I attached an ornate medallion and applied several layers of white gesso. I then added a design to the top using an unconventional material.
I purchased this netting at a garage sale a while ago and immediately thought it would make a nice stencil. I draped it over the table,
and sprayed heirloom white paint over the top.
I then did a wash over the entire table with watered down grey gesso, which brought out the design. The effect is very subtle.
After lots of cleaning, sanding the tops, and building up a couple of the feet,
I used the same gesso treatment. I added a little extra grey to the finish, and hints of black in the details. I also did a small floral design in the center.
Lots more to come. Check back soon.
