Linking to Southern Lovely:Show and Share
The detailed wooden frame of the glass tray with romantic scene is charming, but perhaps not the vintage look wanted today. My first thought was 'paint it white' which I did with ASCP Old White. I was going to sand and wax - then I decided to add some ASCP Province and ASCP Versailles in some areas.
When that paint dried I added another layer of Old White. A few hours later, inside and with evening lighting, I sanded the tray lightly in a few areas so that some of the colour and the original finish showed through. I gave the frame a clear paste wax finish and buffed, then scraped the paint off the glass, used a bit of glass cleaner and the tray was ready for a tea party. I had great company today while I worked - DGS's dog Peaches. Loves her Milk Bones.
Today is our 42nd Anniversary. Love to you DH. Quite the journey.
