I want to share a recent project that I completed for a local business (before the shut down). It is a round table used in an office during consultations. The table fits the needs of the office well, and as it does not have individual legs, it works well for sitting side by side during consultations with clients. The problem was that the tabletop had been treated with so much furniture polish that the finish had been damaged. Every fingerprint showed and the protective coating had been softened so that you could actually see handwriting embedded in it!
Once the wood was exposed, I repaired a few damaged spots along the edges and stained it in a similar mahogany tone as the original finish.
We decided to add some contrast by painting the base in Wolf Gray by Benjamin Moore, which blended with the office furnishings and let the tabletop stand out. I added some texture to the base by dry brushing some black and gray tones over the Wolf Gray and distressed it slightly to add character.
The table is now back in the office and serving the staff and their clients.
