On Thursday, we did a Take Two on the farmhouse table. Take one ended up being a little bit of a mistake. You can read about it here, but sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words:

To correct my mistake, I first sanded off the bubbled paint, then mixed together equal parts of Miss Mustard Seed’s paint and bonding agent.

 

I didn’t notice a difference in the thickness of the paint or how the paint went on when I used the bonding agent which was great. It didn’t bubble as it was drying like it did the first time, so I could tell the paint had adhered better.

After everything had dried, I took a good look and hated it. It looked too perfect. The table needed to be taken back to its farmhouse roots, so I did a little bit of distressing.

My favorite part of any project, you might be surprised to know, is the time I get to spend styling a piece after it is finished. I spend all this time working, painting, sanding and correcting just to do a photo shoot!

Please enjoy today’s shoot: Farmhouse Harvest
