I started out making these tables from old industrial shelves and car metal. Problem was, I was limited in terms of COLOR!
So... I began to use many layers of paint. I then distress them to varying degrees so that they look like a future vintage piece. Maybe something you would find now or 50 years from now, in an old garage next to some old signs. They have that same appeal. Sometimes I use a clean look that has no aging at all. In any case, I use saturated colors that explode under a thick layer of super hard and crystal clear coat.
So many colors, sizes, shapes to choose from! I have matched layers of color from neutrals and raw steel to 5 layers of fluorescents! I can always match my client's colors for exactly the right fit.
