This antique table has an awesome base, but I had it in 6 sales at Liberty Belle and no one fell in love with it, so I decided I needed to paint it. I saw the Union Jack painted on furniture on missmustardseed.blogspot.com and decided it would be perfect.
Taping off and getting the design correct were the toughest part.
The finished product! (Yes, I laid it across my kitchen table and worked on it.)
I distressed it a bit. I couldn't find the glaze I wanted, so I used brown shoe polish. Then, using wipe-on polyurethane, I sealed it.
When I return it to Liberty Belle for the next sale, I'll post a picture of it, base and all.
