A Sweet Little Table
The top was well worn and weathered, so it needed a quick sanding down with my orbital Sander.
Choosing a stencil
I was about to organise our first Farmhouse Clock workshop and had received our workshop stencils a couple of weeks ago, but I hadn’t really thought about using it on my newly acquired table until my daughter came in and made the suggestion. I was leaning toward our Coffee Stencil or the Antiques & Collectibles stencils across the centre or even randomly to one side like I have been doing lately. But the clock stencil fit perfectly, so away I went …
Then I thought I’d give it a white wash look using watered down Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint – I mixed 3 parts water to 1 part Farmhouse White colour. You can see the difference it made to the orange look of the pine, giving it more of a rustic, Farmhouse style.
I also painted the cast iron base in Farmhouse White – equal parts paint to water. It covered really well in just two coats.
Learning to tell time
Introducing our new Clock Making Workshop
I also created a prototype for our Clock making workshop coming up on the 22nd July, so if you’re in the Brisbane, Logan areas in Queensland, Australia, book in quick because there are limited spaces available! We’d love to have you here.
