I built this console/buffet table for a client. The dimensions are 80”x15”x33.5”. The client wanted a washed out kind of restoration hardware kind of color so this is what I came up with. The recipe is 1 coat of General finishes medium brown dye stain, wiped back with a wet rag immidiately after application. then one coat of a watered down latex paint. applied heavy so it won’t dry up, and then wiped back and wiped again with a wet rag after excess has been wiped away with a dry paper towel. Then I used the wet rag I used to wipe the dye stain back with as a glaze and wipe the entire project down with that, that mellows out any intense whites or blues that may be present and gives nice weathered look. This table was fun to build. In person it really looks nice. I added larger than normal offsets wherever I could and that combined with the handmade lower rail moulding and legs give the viewer several different dimensions to look at. Also I Added a heavy 45* bevel to the bottoms of the arched apron rails, giving them a more stream line look without sacrificing strength. There’s a lot going on here. Just how I like it.
