Farmhouse Chic

We recently had the privilege to help one of our customers decorate her new medical clinic. One of the pieces in the clinic was this farmhouse table. Staying true to our local craftsmen, we had our “overall man” (this is what the girls at the shop call him, lol), custom design and make this table for the clinic.

The table measured 7′ long and 3′ wide; the top was constructed out of poplar and the legs out of solid oak. This table was a beauty in its natural state. But alas, we painted it to suit the space.

The first thing that I did was to stain the top with a beautiful mix of blues and greens…

Next I painted the table legs Annie Sloan® Old White, waxed them, then applied another coat of Old White. I waxed in between to give a nice worn effect. It’s really beautiful.

Lastly, I applied Artesian Enhancements® Clear Topcoat Sealer to give a layer of protection to the table. This sealer can be applied over wax and also has a matte finish. It also serves as an indoor/outdoor sealer and has a 2 day cure time.
