My first vision for these Mid Century Tables was simple, sedate and white. I painted one table and determined it was sedate alright! I quickly changed my vision. 

A created two custom mixes of teal paint. I painted a base coat of one color and after it dried I applied the second coat here and there and dripped water on I t to create an old stained effect. I repeated this technique with both the copper and tawny Pearl Effects. I used a bit of bronze to add age and when it was dry I sealed the base. The top is sanded, stained with Java Gel and then sealed.
