Making that table was fun, though the measuring and cutting tends to become to straining if I work longer than ten to fifteen minutes at a time. But I'm not in a hurry :')
I varnished the table top the next morning. I did it only once, with regular indoor and outdoor oak wood-stain, and at first I was not sure if I should add another layer but I decided against it. It's always a possibility for later.
It was the first time I used varnish on Balsa and I loved the structure it gave the table top! The legs and the supporting parts would be painted as soon as I'd choosen the colour :)
That didn't take me very long. Started mixing colours later that day :) I used acrylic white, some blue and sapgreen to get turquoise. And then more white to get a lighter shade. And more white and ... (a)
Still, after two layers, it did look a bit darker and brighter than I intended. So it would need some aging and/or distressing, the part I'm always dreading to do, because it never seem to work for me :')
I've found a dry brush tutorial and tried that. I also did some sanding and used some 'patina' and well, here you go. Not very old looking, but better than before, right? :)
I want all different kinds of chairs with the table, different styles as well as different colours. Very Boho chic. Maybe with pastel colours in the shades I choose for the kitchen. And at least one chair with a woven seat of course!
