Inspiration comes from so many different sources...
in this instance, it was the fabric!
I loved it, had NO plan for it,
but bought 5 yards anyway...
it has a Moroccan vibe to it, don't you think?
The chairs and the table base
got coated in Annie Sloan's Old Ochre
before being sealed with Pure Tung Oil
Kenny has used Tung Oil in the past, but I had not
It's sticky, and has a peanutty smell
I applied two coats, 24hrs apart, right over the chalk paint
After wiping away the excess, I was left with a durable finish
I could have stopped there,
but I wanted an older, more worn look...
so I applied a dark wax glaze over the Tung Oil
On the table top, I then sanded away some of the wax
to create a streaky, worn, weathered finish...
The leaves were SUCH a pain!
Ever have one of those pieces that should be so easy,
yet everything keeps going WRONG??
That was this set!
In the end, I am quite pleased
with the Moroccan Trellis stencil, done in white,
outlined by vibrant blue and rich coco
This set mixes elegance with adventure...
a little pretty, a little funky
