I bought this magazine table a couple of weeks ago, and it was in pretty bad shape. I know I paid too much for what it was, but I could see the potential. Even though it was filthy and needed a lot of love, I felt I had something to work with.
A lot of gluing and clamping was necessary!!I used ASCP in Country Grey and Graphite. I chose the Country Grey because it is similar in color to a vintage postcard. I like the contrast between the two colors.
Even though I thought I was done with the gluing and clamping, I kept noticing more that needed to be done!I created a "postcard" in word, using the Graphics Fairy image as inspiration. I used a pencil to mark behind the lettering so I could trace onto table top.
I then painted on top of penciling. And painted the legs of the table in Country Grey and the magazine holder portion in Graphite. I waxed the whole table in clear, and then added light brown briwax on top of AS clear wax.
