Mood Indigo

By Tina Macioci, Furniture Artist at Gussied Upcycle in Columbus, OH.

Rustic charm describes this modest accent table.  From the saw marks on the wood to the wooden pegs holding it together, this bluesy little number will bring the perfect amount of color to your home.  

The top is stained with Jacobean by Minwax, the wood grain has been enhanced with a touch of dry brushing in General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint.  The surface will withstand many years of love, protected with a few layers of Flat out Flat topcoat, again by General Finishes.  

GF Klein Blue adorns the sides and legs.  A wash of Halcyon Blue, gently wiped back, makes the barnwood texture pop.  Again, a little dry brushing in Lamp Black, further enhances the texture of this piece.  

A charming finish for such a lovely little rustic table.
