Early American Painter

This coffee table is made with a vintage cupboard door...left "as is" with its interesting, chippy, and cream colored patina (2 different shades of off-white). Tabletop painted with Rufus Porter-inspired New England Landscape in beautiful pastel colors topped with a stunning clear coat finish that looks like glass! 40.5"L X 20.5"D X 17.75"H SOLD!
I love painting on tables! It’s the perfect blending of folk art and function! It all started when I painted a rustic old camp table, made by my dad decades ago, with several Rufus Porter style vignettes. My brother then applied a beautiful, protective clear coat finish to the tabletop...that looked like glass…and suddenly, an idea was born! People who saw the table loved the way it was both a work of art and a functional piece of furniture. Today, I am re-purposing tables found in my journeys throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire with Rufus Porter style early American folk art!
If you are looking for unique, painted furniture with a period-style ambiance for your traditional home, look no further! Each table is an original 1-of-a-kind! I would love to customize a table just for you. Please contact me if you have a table you would like painted, or if you would like me to find and paint the perfect table for you!
