Client Coffee Table: Before and After

Howdy Peeps! Sorry for the little disappearing act...I'm recovering from surgery. Nothing too serious, I just finally decided it was time to evict the old uterus. She gave me 3 beautiful kids, but aside from that, she's given me hell. I don't miss her one bit ;)

 Two weeks ago, Shayne brought me this coffee table for a client. Fantastic bones, but a babysitter had spilled nail polish on it...and then tried to use nail polish remover to get take it off. No good. It could be another installment of "Crimes Against Furniture".

  Before: Photobucket After heavy dry brushing, distressing and Jacobean stain as a glaze: Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket I have a few fun projects as soon as I'm cleared to sand!

Happy Tuesday!

She has some gorgeous gams that's for sure! I do love the new look and it shows off it's lovely features.

I never regretted that surgery either, there's a certain freedom it affords...hope you continue to recover quickly.
