Featured Project of the week: Shadow Box Table

table collage

I bought this glass table at a garage sale for a bargain price. It was in need of work and not very attractive.  When I got it home the idea popped into my head of making it into a shadow box table. My husband put to use his great woodworking skills and as you can see in the 2nd picture it now has a place to display items. I had to sand some of the rough areas especially the bottom shelf which had some kind of material glued to it.  I painted the whole piece a new color I wanted to try – Sherwin Williams Sea Salt using my chalk paint recipe. Next I painted some parts in grey chalk paint, then distressed  and waxed it. Notice how some of the sea salt color shows after I distressed it. I put shells in it for now and am going to keep it in my workshop for a while as a show piece. I have always loved shadow box tables and hope to make more of these in the future. I am blessed to have a husband who likes woodworking. We make a great team!

  1. This shadow box table was given to my sister to display her son’s hand-carved fishing lures. My nephew passed away in 2014. He had an amazing talent for collage and woodcarving. As I was refurbishing this table I was thinking of him and I am so happy that it ended up being a memory table in honor of him. RIP: John Daniel Taylor III
