I have seen so many beautiful French inspired pieces with beautiful gilding.
Painted pieces embellished with beautiful trim and carving that has been gilded.
I have a table that I just recently painted white and distressed it.
How to add French flair to a table?
Gild it with Rub ‘n Buff!
I had mentioned that I have seen some great inspiration for gilding,
the latest one was Kim’s makeover of her curio cabinet. It’s a beauty!
I loved the way my pie crust table turned out when I painted it,
but I felt it just needed something.
I started with the top of the table.
I have previously used Rub ‘n Buff in Antique Gold in other projects.
This time I used the Rub ‘n Buff in Gold Leaf.
I could not stop at just gilding the top of the table.
I had to gild all the carved design areas and more.
I am thinking by seeing the side of this table,
that maybe I need to add the gilding to the outer edge of the table too.
Did you notice something new on the table?
I was strolling through HomeGoods the other day,
searching for some Spring outdoor pillows
and I spotted this small blue and white Ralph Lauren lamp.
I did not find any pillows, but the lamp came home with me.
I am still working on my 3rd day of 98 items to “Let Go.”
I must say that so far, it really has been easy,
as I have accumulated so much stuff throughout the years.
I have done another Rub ‘n Buff project and I will present that
along with my 98 things I am letting go in an upcoming post very soon.
I am doing a lot of purging as there is another reason why I am doing this
other than “letting go” …. we want to downsize!!!
Talk about letting go!
We have had this golf course lot for 12 years and it is time to build our
downsized home on it!
It is going to be a slow process, taking our time,
gathering ideas to come up with a great house plan that utilizes every square foot
to its fullest advantage. Looking forward to the journey!
The weather has been glorious here…everything is blooming and beautiful.
And on that note, wishing you a most beautiful day!!!
