I had this Victorian rope leg antique lamp table sitting in my basement, I painted it a couple different colors, and it was just not working for me. Awhile back a women I work with gave me a Mackenzie-Childs magazine, because she wanted to show me some dishes she wanted to order. So, after I painted the table for the third time and hated it, I glanced over and saw the magazine and thought to myself.....hmmmmmm
And there you have it, my Mackenzie-Childs inspired lamp table.
My son came into the basement while I was waxing the table, and said, wow that's awesome,
do we have any giant checkers?
I painted the table with ASCP, Aubusson Blue, Arles, Old White & Graphite. The Arles is very subtle, if you look at the checkers you will see some of it under the white. I hand painted the gold using
liquid leaf and I finished with clear wax.
The table is currently for sale at KDM Antiques,
I am hopeful that who ever buys it,likes chess.
