The two diamond window doors were 'finds' on Saturday. They came with vintage glass knobs and brass hinges (door side only). They will eventually be wall/window art pieces.
One door had been somewhat painted white. First I filled the door handle and hinge holes with Durham Water Putty.
Taped the glass before painting.
The door frame received 2 coats of ASCP Old White (both sides). Waxed CeCe Clear Wax.
Next project was the mirror frame. I painted it some time ago and it needed a paper backing
as well as another coat of paint (ASCP Old White). Still needs waxed.
The 'big' project of the day was a delightful drop leaf side table. It is shorter than a regular table. Very sturdy.
DH fixed the drop leaf issues (notice the 'drops'). He removed the hinge screws, moved the hinges so that the leaves were horizontal when open and drilled/replaced the screws. Thank you.
He also sanded the top to remove the old finish.
The legs were as slow to paint as chair legs. I started around two in the afternoon and you can see from the 'darker' photo images that I continued working on the table after supper.
Two coats of ASCP Old White, one coat of CeCeCaldwell Satin finish. The base was a time eating task. The top is going to be in the next post.
Thanks for visiting.
Loved having an afternoon to work on projects.
