398 White Painted Harvest Table, Hand Carved, French Country

Beautiful white painted cabriole dining table (newly built by us of course) sits in Justin & Burk's lovely shop in Portland, Oregon.  
Detail of leg and end apron showing hand carving and paint texture. 
The finish is built up of several layers of casein paint.  Casein paint sticks like glue, is rugged, has a great antique look, a wonderful sheen and feel, and can be coaxed into crackling perfectly. 
Close view of top texture.  
First layer of paint is a gentle olive green, next a dove grey, finally a neutral ivory white. 
At center of side apron. 
Photographed in our studio.
Another view
End apron view, showing square pegs, and detail.  The apron on this design is extra thick and this detail shows in a subtle way at the right viewing angles. 
End view.  
Top view; this table was more heavily eroded.  
Foot detail showing extra "aging" and "dirty" at floor. 
End apron showing square pegs and subtly crackling paint.  This paint is non toxic and food safe.  
Showing hand carving, aged effects. This particular piece went to live in Manhattan.  But Of Course we can do custom sizes!
