Hi, Patty. I finally get two minutes to myself to get these pics sent to you. I used peppercorn over pumpkin – both thinned with water and applied smoothly- with a layer of chipping creme between and pretty heavy toner. Also, I did two layers of wipe-on poly.
I practiced on the nightstand (you can see how beaten up it was on the surface, but was solidly built with dovetail joinery – It is HEAVY!) and then tackled the table and chairs. It was fun, but got really tedious by the end (I was seeing those chairs when I closed my eyes at night!) 🙂 The chairs were originally a blond pine color – the shot of them outside is after the coats of pumpkin.
Feel free to post these… thanks again for all the advice and I hope to do more of these types of projects in the future.
How sweet is this! That looks like years of worn paint – what a cool rustic finish –
I LOVE this photo of the demo-
Pumpkin layer drying-
You can SEE why she was having chair nightmares toward the end – this wasn’t a small feat, but WAIT till you see the outcome!
Pumpkin is on and dry, chipping creme is on and dry, now the Peppercorn
Oooh, do you see it starting to come together?
Sweet victory dance –
Love It! Love It! Love It! Love It! Love It! Love It!
No way would you have thought that was the before set – go look!
