Before the Restoration:

I have wanted to paint a Duncan Phyfe dining table ever since I saw this pic in HGTV Magazine.

So when I got an email asking me to paint a Duncan Phyfe table, and this EXACT PIC was included as an inspiration pic, I couldn’t resist. This gorgeous table looks as though it’s had a long and busy life. Scratches everywhere. And when I say everywhere, I mean everywhere. It looked (and smelled!) as though a dog might’ve been living underneath it, and gnawing on the feet. But never fear….a little TSP cleaner, some wood filler, and I might even try a little product I saw at Lowe’s last week. You mix it into your paint and it’s supposed to remove smells that have saturated the wood. I’ll report back and let you know how it works.
