Trailer table progress

After a visiting the family for the holidays, I am back home and working on the replacement table for my little trailer. Before Christmas I completed burning the pattern, so the next step is paint.
Before launching into painting such a large surface, I warmed up by woodburning, then painting, a set of six small picture frames to match the table. They should help to coordinate the colors and flowering vine theme around the inside of the trailer. The frames have the same 4 colors that I am using on the table.

Here is the table with the red applied...












And with the yellow...

Tomorrow night I start adding the purple background, then I will paint the thousands of little leaves green. And finish off both table and frames with several coats of spar varnish.


One last note about Christmas projects: This year I decided to needle-felt an ornament for each member of my family. As you can see, I have a very large family!

Your ornements are great. Have to fool around with needle felting one of these days.

I can't wait to see that trailer when it's finished! Tell Sharon that one of my friends here in Downieville says sleep is highly overrated:)

The table is looking great! I hope you don't end up seeing little green leaves in your sleep.
