I have been very busy getting ready for Lucketts Holiday Open House (Nov 8-9-10). My house is full of glittery bow-tied adorableness right now. Very exciting!
I will not be bringing a lot of furniture to the event, but here is one piece I just finished up. I LOVE how it turned out! I wanted to create something with an industrial vibe to it.
The base is a shorter than your usual treadle sewing machine base. It measures 18″ tall (excluding the fly wheel) Its a great height to use as a coffee table.
The top of the table is not an actual packing crate but something I created out of reclaimed knotty pine paneling and a stencil I made using my new Silhouette Cameo.
I created the hand-aged finish using a very watery stain made from Miss Mustardseed’s Typewriter milk paint. I applied a furniture wax top coat for a soft matte sheen.
Thank you for stopping by!
PS – I will be linking this project up with the following parties. Thanks for hosting ladies!
