Union Jack Table

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 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.


  1. Hello Anne,
    good that you came to the table,
    who knows what hard work, but it is
    worth it, very good!

  2. Hello from Woking near London, England...
    love the table, I hope it sells next time..

  3. Absolutely wonderful! I love what you've done with this table! I'm sure it will sell now, to a discerning and appreciative customer.

  4. Adding glass bird feeders as accent pieces to your
    cage bird feeders or garden is one sure way to lift up your pleasure for birds, be it wild or caged ones.
