Red Lily Dyed and Stained Table

Before christmas,  I had a customer purchase my Sunflower Table


He decided he wanted a pair of red lily tables.  I had one table the size and style that he needed so I got the first Red Lily table done for him.


I then had to try to find a match for the second one he wanted.  This should have been an easy task, but I couldn't find one exactly to match for quite some time.


Finally, I found this one, that was close but a  little on the lighter side.


I stripped the top down and came up with a coordinating lily design and got started on the staining.









I used General Finishes Merlot Dye for the red of the lily and Minwax Ebony for the shading to make the lily come to life.


I sealed it all with Polyvine Satin for a durable finish!






Here are the two side by side..  lighting is a little different in the pictures, so coloring is a little off.






Although this post was QUICK, the designing wasn't!  My pieces usually take about 2 - 3 weeks from start to finish, and depending on the intricacy of the design, the staining itself takes anywhere from 10 - 16 hours.  And I enjoy every minute of making these pieces of furniture art! 


Thanks for following along with me!!  As always, I would love for you to connect with me socially!
