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…
