The elegant and refined Hand Painted Drum Table with Drawer by Swirl Furniture, also boasts gorgeous glass hardware with chrome swirls, as well as a satinwood banded edge. The drum portion of the table is fastened to solid wood, along with a acanthus carved base with chrome capped feet. This Drum Table is great to use as an end table but also suited for display in the center of a front entryway, under a window, etc.
My obsession with Drum Tables began when I saw how beautiful and uniquely built they are. When I found this Drum Table I could not wait to see what needed to be fixed and mended.
First, I stripped, sanded, and cleaned every inch of the table and drawer. I managed to save the original maker label of the table which is nailed on the inside of the drawer. I then felt the table needed a dramatic color, therefore deciding to paint the table with Amulent Furniture and Decor Paint in Coal. I then used Amulent White Wax placing the wax in the satinwood banded edge around the top of the table as well as in the carved portions on each leg. The banded edge, the bottom portion of the table, and the edges of each legs are distressed allowing the original wood to pop out making the black and white paint colors bold and stunning. The entire piece is sealed with Amulent Clear Wax in a Lavender Scent. This wax takes 30 days to cure. The wax dries in a matte finish and protects the paint and wood from water and daily use. I painted the metal paws chrome to go along with the gorgeous glass hardware with chrome metal swirls. Vynl drawer liner with black and white polka dots was added to the drawer, pulling the black, white, and chrome attributes altogether. I am very proud of this Drum Table! It is truly a Jaw Dropper and absolutely stunning in person. It fits in with Swirl's one-of-a-kind furniture collection.
