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
starting November 2nd thru to the end of the month or until it sells.

Many of my piece are being used in the store to display textiles and artisan wears from
around the world. All are for sale and we hope they find new homes.
For more information on the store including address and hours:

I will be attending an opening gala evening Thursday Nov. 3 and will take photos to share
more about all the beautiful products, textiles, and vendors.
