THE CAPTAIN AND HIS SOLDIERS PT 3 - union jack set




Here is the final piece to the Union Jack set.









It started as a fairly simple 80's blond table.

But it did have this great wood graining on the surface



This whole project was a learning process or a feat of trial and error.
Figuring out what would work, what could work, and what just wasn't going to fly.



I first painted the apron and legs in blue



Then decided I wanted it white



The blue and red was kept thin and even distressed to take advantage of the graining.
The entire table was rubbed down with dark wax.
It helped to emphasize the grain ...



richen the red ...



darken the blue ...

and finally to ton down the white to match the color
 of the drop cloth on the seats


The table also has a leaf that I did in red to create
 a wider strip down the center when used.


This set will be on display at
THE FAIR TRADE MARKET POP UP in November
