I am really starting to love mid-century modern furniture. Before, I was all French curves and farmhouse chic. Don’t get me wrong – I still LOVE those things. It’s just that lately, I’m loving things a little more Don Draper and a little less Marie Antoinette. Yeah, they both had huge egos and some serious character flaws, but that is neither here nor there…
Just like our girl, this tablestarted out with a need for a serious makeover. She was a roadside rescue, and the previous owner had left her with a cracked top and peeling finish.
Rocky Mountain is a less severe grey. It has brown undertones that warm it up. I love a steely blue-grey most of the time, but Rocky Mountain has won me over!
I sanded between coats for a smooth finish, and sealed the final coat with Country Chic’s Hemp Oil. Since this was a dark colour to begin with, I found that the oil only slightly deepened the colour. To be safe, I gave every surface at least one coat for colour consistency, and 3 coats on the tabletop.
