Casey's tables

Well, it's been awhile since I've posted.  I've been enjoying the summer with my boys, with not much time to work on furniture.  I committed to only taking 2 projects a month for the summer, and now I just have one project left!

I've done several things for Casey before and what I love about painting for her is 1: She's not afraid of color and 2: She tells me the color pallette and let's me be really creative with it.  I just finished 3 tables for her, all with similar ranges of blue and green, but all 3 with different finishes.

Magazine table:
Cece caldwell's Virginia Chestnut topped with a wash of blue over it, wet distressed and clear waxed.

Hexagonal table:
Custom blue washed with green, distressed and topped with dark wax.

Square table: 
Aubusson blue, washed with Antibes green and the French linen.  Wet distressed and then clear wax.  Love how it all layers up together!
