Beautiful Coffee Table

Here we have a rather sad coffee table that a client asked me to re-do and make beautiful and it wasn't that hard to do.

Here is the table when I got it.  It was very well worn.  But it had potential :)

Here is a close up of the detail on the legs and the apron of the piece.

Here is the leg after I painted the whole thing black.  It was pretty But.....There was still work to be done.

This is the leg close up after distressing it.  The detail now is much more pronounced but it looks dry and the wood showing through is very light.

This is the close up of the leg after I put the colored wax on it.  The wax makes the leg more rich looking and not dry at all.

This is the side view of the finished piece.  Notice the distressing on the side apron was done with a very light touch and only went through the black paint and not the wood stain.

Finish piece was delivered to a very happy client.  Its so much fun to do these interesting pieces.  Everyone has them, there is a never ending supply.
