A Natural Beauty

I'm baaaaccckkkk!!!  Sorry I've been MIA lately, but it seems like ever since Flower Bud got out of school we have been going non-stop.  I have been working, just haven't had time to write any posts.  Actually had a few minutes so thought I'd share this little table I did a couple of months ago:

Isn't it cute!!  Unfortunately I neglected to take a "before" photo, but it was a light natural colored stain.  The client asked me to strip it down to the bare wood and then wax it.  So I stripped it down to the bare wood and then applied this wax:

I love this wax, but I don't use it very often because it is pretty pricy.  The client actually provided this container.  It has a really creamy texture and has a kind of golden orangy tone:

In the photo below you can see the difference in the stripped side (right) and the waxed side (left):

It gives it such a lovely natural patina:

My client is building a new house and plans to use this as a little breakfast table.  Just a little table for her and her husband to use while drinking their coffee and reading the paper.  I can already see it with the pretty little chairs...
