Things That Make Me Happy: Pleasant Surprises

Old, sanded table top

Old, sanded table top

We planned to redo all the tables at From The Garden.

We wanted to stain them then add artwork from the 1920’s with a decoupage process.

First we sanded the tables so that they could take the stain.


Swirling and swirling

Next we stained the table. To our surprise the beautiful wood grain appeared. The zebra like swirls were so pretty. Too pretty, in fact to cover up with more artwork.

We will leave the tables as they are and allow the food to be the artwork.

From The Garden is a restaurant coming soon to Lark Street in Albany, NY with a focus on farm to table ingredients and flavor pairing.
