I know not everyone likes painted wood, but I’ve met a few on this site that do, so this is for them. The deer and the bear are painted on live edge wood plaques, that were given to me. All of the pictures I paint are on birch plywood, cut to fit and inserted into a frame that either I bought, or I made. I built the shelf with the picture frame inserted inside. Way to fun to make and easy. Good project for you LJ’s that know someone that paints. The Grumpy Bear is going over my bedroom door at the cabin for my husband. He likes it. As far as the tables go, I just got to lazy to refinish them this time. The Rose table was my grandmothers and this is what I did to it. I have the other one in one of my other projects posted here, but it’s painted for a cabin. I remember those tables way to well. Very dark stain that I didnt want to try to get off. Sad to say, but I didnt like the tables enough to go through all that work. Nobody else wanted them, but I couldnt get rid of them either. I think she would like what I did to both of them. The last table in this project I picked up for $10.00 at a storage sale. I loved the table. It is very solid and very well built. It sat in my basement for about 3 years while I kept thinking about what I should do with this. I finally decided to just paint it this fall. It had a very dark stain on it and the top is veneer with chips. I don’t know how or what to do with veneer when it has chips except paint it. You can’t even see them now. I did sand all the nicks out of the legs and was able to leave some of the original stain on. The color doesnt show true in the pictures for the legs and skirt, but I’m very happy with it. It’s not as ugly as it looks in the pics.
