Playing around with stain

I’ve been experimenting with unconventional use of stain on furniture.  A few weeks ago I posted a blog called Pent Up Creativity about a table that I had done to resemble a seascape.

This time I decided to play with a combination of stain and paint.  When I first saw this table, I was drawn to it for some reason.  It was small and unique.  I thought a playful design on top would be fun.

There was a lot of trial and error (emphasis on error), but here is the final outcome.  I love how you can achieve an ombre effect with the stain, but the paint allows for crisp, sharp images.

Oh the possibilities…
