Coffee Table Sneak Peek

I’m snowed in today so this is what I’m working on.  Finally!



Let’s hope that by the end of the day my coffee table and my marriage are both still intact!

Sorry to hear you are snowed in, but hopefully that means you are getting some good creative time in!

That looks great! I love the black legs.

Living in CA, I'd like to be snowed in once and a while. It's great you're getting some projects done!

Hi Kathy,
Oooo, I love the way it's turning out.
You asked about the gel stain on oak cabinets. I think it would work beautifully. It's one of those things you have to work fast though. If you're doing a table/chair, or something with lots of little areas and legs, you can get into trouble with it becoming sticky fast. I think if you had some mineral spirits on hand to thin as you go, would be helpful.
So if you're doing the armoire, put a lot on at once and drag it fast, from top to bottom, before it starts to thicken up. Tap it into the top and bottom cracks/seams and start dragging the whole length. Then maybe dip the brush into the thinner and keep going. Does that help? I hope so. Just remember it starts thickening fast! You can't be interupted at all! Let me know if you have any more questions.

Ha Ha~totally can relate to the marriage comment. I've got a coffee table that i'm waiting to paint also. Haven't even attempted it because it's too cold outside and HE would die if I did it on the carpet! Funny!

Verdigris Vie said...

Looking Good..

I love that you always have something on the go.. Most people might sit by a fireplace and drink hot cocoa on a snowy day..:-)

Karen Valentine said...

Oooh Kathy I love the black!!! I bet it looks fabulous!!! I've been thinking of painting a chair in my front room black. I just can't make the commitment yet!!!

Stay warm and have a great weekend!

I love, love, love that table! You did a GREAT job on it!

We've been snowed in too. Hasn't the weather been CRAZY?

Thanks for the comment on my blog. You are so sweet!



Liz @ the Brambleberry Cottage said...

What's with all the snow everywhere? We got more of the white stuff last night also.

Kathy, I was looking at your project and how it appears to be something you tackled inside your home. If I attempted a project like that inside right now, I would have more than just a table painted! My miniature assistant would make sure of it. LOL
