Every once in a while I do something which requires a little more than simply brushing on some paint and calling it a day. This cocktail table was donated a few months ago by a good friend, Anne, and it always reminded me of a ship wheel.
I only thought it appropriate to do something nautical on it and the Compass Rose was perfect, but it took a while to decide what the base color would be. White didn’t seem right, nor did blue. But only after I found a clock that inspired me did I get serious about getting this table into the shop and finished.
Painting the table in a deep gray seemed a perfect background for the colors of the clock.
It took about four hours total, from start to finish and sold in less than two hours after putting it on the floor. What do you think?
