In Follow-Up: Hand Painted Table
May 3, 2010
So the table before as you can see is peeling and in rough shape. So I gessoed(primed) the top and let that dry. In the meantime, I picked out the colors I wanted (some of which were Behr samples left over from the den painting project) and dove in. I was using Mediterranean tiles as my inspiration but as you can see when I started the design, it went in its own direction. I am always drawn to shapes in nature like leaves and trees so I ran with it. So after you are happy with your design just make sure to but a protective coat on top to prevent it from bleeding and fading.
I have to say it looks pretty darn good on our deck with our blue and yellow motif.
