Last post for the day: Amanda Devers banner and chess table

Beautiful Banner made by a friend and photographer Amanda Devers. Love it....
Super aweome chess table I made for Amanda's older sons for Christmas this year. I immitated my Great Grandmothers hand made chess board and re-designed it just a smidgen and it turned out fantastic. I made it to sit on this table so when you weren't using the chess table you could hang it on the wall, and use the table as a night stand or end table. Perfect combination.
Close up to the top of the chess board. A distressed creamy navy blue and a light tan outlined in primitive cream. As soon as I added the poly to the top the dark provincial stain color started to come through and it looked amazing. Makes the chess board look older than it is, and that was exactly what Amanda wanted.
