You may be tiring of table updates, but that’s all I seem to be working on! Soon enough, calving season will begin, and you’ll have more ranch/cow photos, but for now, it’s me and that table (and you).
I showed it to Brandon and Megan yesterday, and we changed a few things up. Unbelievably, I have a small container of paint that matches Megan’s yellow kitchen wall, so I was off and running today.
I redesigned the center. I had larger letters and less of an angle before. Knowing I was going to surrounded GREET with more sunflowers, I reduced its size. This seemed to fit the space better to me.
Again the lighting messed with its true color, but you get the idea. A light wash of yellow for the first coat is on all but the upper left flowers. I’ll add a bit of darker color in progressive steps, though it, too, will be a wash so the wood grain comes through. Once the petals meet my satisfaction, a grey stain will be applied to the other areas and possibly over the flowers, too.
I’m so excited on how it’s turning out, I can’t hardly stand it! I almost spent the evening working on it and not coming back to the house. No matter its condition, stained, water damaged and all… I still think it will be a treasure. A few more days and I’ll find out for sure.Find me here!
