Raise your hand if your mother had one of these leather top tables.
I think every house had one at one time. I still have one that was my mothers, although it is in much better shape than this one.
The finish was so uneven that I had to pull out the sander.
I had a feeling that this type of wood was going to bleed through my paint so I added BOSS to prevent it.
Even though the wood was in such bad shape, the leather top was fine & I wanted to leave it as is. So I picked colors that would work well with the leather. I started out with the color Rebel Yellow.
Then I added some Colonel Mustard...
Does anyone else paint on their kitchen counters?
I added Van Dyke Brown glaze to the detail by painting it on, then wiping it away with a damp rag...
The colors reminded me of sunflowers. So, I added a few. They are from the re*design with Prima tranfer called Sunflower Fields.
I cut several in half & added them to the edges of the table.
This is NOT your mama's leather top table!
