Dressing Table Sweetness

After beginning to paint this sweet dressing table, I realized I had failed, once again, to take a before shot.  Let's just say it was dull, tired, and dinged.

Using ProClassics from Sherwin Williams in Roman Column, I painted away...then once the top was perfectly painted I took a dough scraper and scraped off the paint, revealing authentic crackling and imperfections.  I love the look.  The framed mirror is also finished in the same manner.  Three coats of polyurethane topped it off nicely.

I moved this to my booth at River Market Antique Mall.  Hope it sells this weekend!
