Duncan Phyfe Style Table

 There is a great Giveaway going on right now! Enter at bottom of post!

I have painted a lot of things but never have I painted a table and chairs. I don't know if I will ever do it again too!

It was a lot of work! I had found this at a good deal but that was because the top was damaged. One thing about paint, it makes things look so much better when completed.

It was a Duncan Phife style table that had two butterfly leaves and extended to 8 feet.
I painted it with ASCP first then covered the top with a Glidden Latex paint in black.

The legs are Paris Gray with dark wax.

I love how the details now show up on the legs.

My poor floors are getting a beating! Can't wait for it to get warmer so I can paint outside.

 I don't have the chairs uploaded from my phone yet so I will have to post about them another time.

The painting took a lot of time but the end results totally transformed the feel and style of this piece.

It sold already! Hurray! It will be awhile before I get another one though!

Don't forget about my Giveaway for a custom sign!!! Enter HERE!

It is fun being able to design what you want on your own sign!

Looking good! Be kind to your floors please. They are so expensive to have refinished. Plus, the mess when they have to sand them down! Yikes!

Great job! Love the colors you chose! And you need to paint more!!

Wonderful job!!! Just beautiful and I must say I admire you for taking on such a huge project! It is one of my goals to actually have someone "buy" something I have repurposed. I seem to always "give" my projects away....rewarding, however, my hubby would love to see some income and not just out-go!!! Thanks for you inspiration!
