A different kind of project for me - I bought a battered nest of tables quite a while ago at a Car Boot Market in Lincolnshire. They've been sat in the garage for at least a year waiting for inspiration and time! I was determined to make a start this summer - the largest and smallest table I stripped and then waxed but the middle one I decided to try something different. Here it is:
I stripped the varnish and then glued strips of a road map onto the top. The map actually forms a bit of a puzzle as hidden within it are places that are special to my family - places where we were born, live or went to University!! I have to say that it is a happy coincidence that there is water on both sides - but don't try and navigate using it!
I finished by waxing the whole table with natural beeswax - hopefully this will protect the surface.
