If you saw my recent post of homemade chalky paint (click here) then you probably know who Lumpy is. My first try at homemade chalky paint produced a lumpy paint. And because that was all I had, I ended up using that paint on this table. When I was finished the table was covered in little plaster of Paris bumps. I decided to call the table “Lumpy.”
Once I improved my process for making homemade chalky paint, I sanded and repainted Ol’ Lumpy. (To see what I did to fix the problem, click here). Lumpy looks much better now, in fact, I probably shouldn’t even call him that any more.
I used clear Annie Sloan wax and Rugger Brown Fiddes Wax over the paint. Here are some more views of the finish.
I started out with a family dough bowl on the table but also like these family ironstone pieces here.
Did you notice the platter on top of my shelf?
I found this tucked away at the MIL’s house. I didn’t even know she had this platter because she had it squirreled away in a back drawer. I bet she even forgot she had it. Or maybe she felt it was not worth mentioning, since it is fairly stained. But I like those age marks.
