It's freezing. I have a flat inspection on Tuesday. So decided that my focus this weekend would be on cleaning and tidying the house (which would hopefully keep me warm).
What wasn't on my list was finally deciding what I was going to do with the second table I bought for $4 at the 2013 Sydney show (you'll remember that I painted the first one yellow last year).
But I did. I was inspired by a rustic table I'd seen some time last week in my magazine, book or blog reading (I can't remember which), where the legs had been painted black and the top was rustic and worn looking.
I'd planned to pull apart one of the Typo boxes and use the sides to make the table top, but when I noticed that the one I pulled out of the stash was a coffee box there was a bit of a change of plan.
So I experimented with cutting up the front of the box and mixing the bits up for some rustic reuse.
After a bit of work with the raw umber acrylic to stain the sides and gaps, I'm leaving it to dry overnight.
Then I'll decide it I want to attack it with the sander...
