Anyone that knows me or follows me on Hometalk or my Facebook page know that I love stain shading anything and everything I can. For this project I had a table top I had used the legs for on another project and a base that I had sitting around just waiting for a top. I feel it definitely leans towards the primitive style and I just love how it turned out. I have posted a few pictures and a couple videos of the process. Please excuse my haggard appearance in the video, it is 110 degrees in AZ and I am in the garage...
I sanded the top using a 120 grit paper and did not go higher as I like how 120grit leaves the surface for shading a design. It’s not too ruff which makes the stain bleed but it is smooth enough that when I am finished I get a nice clear image and it seals perfect.
Here is the table all sanded and ready for the image to be applied. I freehand the sunflower on top with a pencil, making sure to do it lightly. As I add the stain and finish the pencil marks disappear.
I am all set up to start shading with the stain. Do not do this with a stain that has poly in it as it will not work and you will have a mess.

First layer of stain is done. I usually go over 2 times.
Finished. I sealead with Varathane poly acrylic, 3 coats.
