Vermont Heritage Table with Cinco Bayou Moss

Earlier this year, our friends at Vermont Heritage Tables  sent me a table to finish in our products.  Like CeCe Caldwell’s Paints, Vermont Heritage Tables is a small, American-owned business that believes in the sustainability of our earth. They celebrate centuries old Vermont traditions of sustainable forestry, family farms and handcrafted heirloom quality woodworking. They have styles from traditional to modern — like this hairpin legged table.Vermont Heritage Table

When their customers request a painted finish on their product, they use CeCe Caldwell’s Paints.  Here they used our Cinco Bayou Moss on a dining table. I love the natural, light top with the neutral hue of the Cinco.

They sent this classic sofa table to me, in its unfinished state.   (I believe you can order your very own for around $150.00).

I postponed the project until after we introduced our newest palette colors.  I decided Duck Blue would be the perfect choice for the legs.  I decided to use our Stain + Finish on the tabletop.  I mixed up a medium brown tone stain from four parts of Savannah Praline and one part of Hickory.

I love the finished sofa table, as does my husband.  The day it left the house to have it’s photo taken, he wanted to make sure it would be returning.  I am using it at the top of my stairs instead of behind a sofa.

Take a moment to visit Vermont Heritage Tables website to learn more about their sustainable forestry practices and to see other examples of their work.  Don’t miss the taphole maple section.  I would love something made from the taphole maple.  You can like them on Facebook by visiting their page here.

Peace,
