I continue to learn more about painting furniture as I read favorite blogs, especially Miss Mustard Seed. The wooden table below has had a long life and the underside was rebuilt many years ago by my Dad. This year more repairs were done by my DH. I painted the tabletop with green latex (oops paint) - 5 coats (should have started with Kiltz) and finished with 3 coats of wax over several days. Then I kept it in my kitchen for two weeks and used it to see if the wax would do its job. Since it did it went into my booth. Vintage, the real thing.
The fan was a weekend find as was the small 'window mirror' which got a dry brush paint (pale green) and dark wax.
