Empire Coffee Table

Introducing an empire table. I'm calling it "empire" because it resembles several of the design features typically found on empire furniture. Empire style was a design movement that flourished between 1804 - 1814 in Europe and eventually spread to America. It takes its name from the rule of Napolean I in the First French Empire. It was intended to idealize his leadership and the French state.

This table will be on its way to its new home in Florida very soon. The paint finish was decided between my customer and me. It's a clean finish that honors the true beauty of empire style furniture.

Colors Top: Sanded then stained a custom mix of Dark Walnut and a medium toned stain. Sealed with oil-based polyurethane. Base: Sanded then painted a color similar to Annie Sloan Old Ochre. Waxed.

The walls With my last post, I introduced you to my new dark wall in the workshop. As soon as I finished that wall, I knew another wall needed to be painted white for pieces that need to be shot on a light backdrop.Constellation by MarthaLeoneDesign
