All That Glitters It took the better part of two months for the dueling elements of weather, time, and opportunity to align so I could finish my table. When I was ready the forecast called for rain, when it was sunny and dry I had other commitments . . . days when it was . . . I'm not sure. But it's done!
The two flowers and checkerboard were done on separate days. I followed my sketch in staying with three elements and decided that drawing freehand was easier and more suited to a backyard picnic table. And the gold paint, it really shimmers when the sun hits it!
