We've been working on a really big salvage project this week and in the structure that we're working on. We found this old bed now. What we're going to do is we're going to cut these bed pros off, we're going to use it for table legs and then we're going to take this centerpiece and we're going to stick it back for another project another day. So we're going to take these table legs that we cut off of the headboard and we're going to put a little wood filler here in the places where the attachments were.
There were some the and some different parts that needed to be filled in. So we could go ahead and prime them and pepper. So now that we've got the legs painted notice that the skirts are a different color from the original color of the legs, so Stevie's going to try them with a darker stain so that when we distressed these legs, the legs and the skirt will all come out. The same color, now, you'll probably notice that I didn't stain that board in the middle of the table.
Working with a technique called a spot and glide, which it differs a little bit from the other boards that I'm painting with the paintbrush or staining with the paintbrush. This table is constructed of three different species of material. Some are more porous than others and require a different technique of application for the stain. With the more porous softer woods, we use the spot and black technique, which is typically done with a rag, a sponge or terry cloth. It's just a lighter application. More touching and rubbing as opposed to saturating, like you, would with our hardwood species.
