I recently got a job painting a pair of Mahogany end tables. I only took a picture of one but there are two of them and yes, that's a big hole in the top but these have a glass insert.

Each one got a coat of ASCP in Old Ochre

They were then given a coat of ASCP Aubusson Blue followed by a good sanding and some clear and dark wax, then buffed out.

They turned out very nice and the customer was very happy with them but I sure learned something as this was my first time for hire, I underestimated the time and cost as I ended up not having enough materials on hand to complete the job and had to buy a can of paint and both waxes. I chalked it up to a learning experience and advertising.

Bye for now,



  1. happens to everyone...I call it "tuition" as in the cost of learning how to do it right!

  2. So true. My fear was when she picked them up that she wasn't going to like them and I was going to have to re-do them but I was spared that thank goodness.
