Enamel tabletop - completed


The enamel tabletop has turned out to be a success.  I probably should have sanded the surface more beforehand.  Even after the gloss sealer, the cross-hatch painting imperfections showed through.  I guess it's just an old, well-loved tabletop.  I always trust the happy accidents, and the surface is not very noticeable in photographs unless you try to capture it.

I painted the apron and legs with Zinc by Americana to coordinate with the chairs.  I reduced the height of the legs by 3/16" to have a better proportion for Gustav and in relation to the cabinet.

The design was applied using a water slip decal over the entire surface to eliminate any halo around the border design.  Full post here.
