69th Table Top Tuesday



 Thanks for joining TTT, you guys are the best and always make this such a fun party.

As I showed you the other day, I have a small collection of Obelisk and Finials and one of them needed a little bling.  This one is wood and I love the carving, however, with the gray dusty whatever they put in the grooves, it just didn't show all the carving.


Good ole' Rub 'n Buff to the rescue. 


 Not a lot, just a touch, but it does have a little more character now.


  I have this arrangment on top of the China cabinet and now the wood one shows up so much better.


 This one is either marble or alabaster, either way it is super heavy and in real life you can see more of the veins and colors.


 This Obelisk in the back is stone.  I love all the pits and age.


The black egg shaped finial is some kind of stone also, and weighs a ton.  The gold leaf on the wood one really shows the carving and let's it hold it's own next to the others.



 The clock in the center, the gold fruit on the left and all of the finials and obelisk on the right, and it works.


 The mirrors on the back of the china cabinet reflect the crystal and silver so much in a picture.  In person, you can see the individual pieces.

I am happy with the touch of bling, little things are all I need to do a yip-skip.  lol  Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  2. Hi Marty,
    I love your collection of finials. The one you just did looks so much nicer! I have a few things that I wanted to buff up too but they don't carry Rub n' Buff anywhere here in Charlottetown. Not even Michaels has it! So, I'm not sure how I'm going to do it. Perhaps I will have to use paint and rub it off. We will see how it goes. Thanks for hosting, lovely lady.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  3. Hi Marty...

    Oooh...I love finials!!! They really are so much fun to decorate with! Girl, I think that adding just a touch of the rub-n-buff was just what your pretty finial needed...it's gorgeous! Loved getting an up-close view of all of the beautiful finials and obelisk! By the way...I love the masonary stuff...so if I ever get your way...and your obelisk comes missing! Just sayin'!!! Hehe! I also love the clock, my friend! It's fabulous! Wherever did you find it? Well dear friend, you have done it again...another fabulous vignette for our TTT party! Your home is always sooo very beautiful and stylish, my dear! Thank you so much for sharing it with us and for hosting the TTT party!

    Love ya,
    Chari

    PS...thank you for the sweet note that you left on my Tea Rose bedroom post...you're the best, sweet friend!

  4. I love the way it looks. One of my next projects is tackling the dead zone on the top of my china cabinet. I would love to have a collection like that. My favorite is the marble or alabaster pineappley looking one.

    I linked up today. Not because I'm a great table gal, but because I clearly have no pride and am willing to get advice from those who are.

  15. I love finials... they make such beautiful home accents. And I love your gorgeous collection of finials... especially the marble pineapple finial is my favorite one. Thanks for this inspiring idea of using rub"n"buff... I have a similar brown corbel shelf and I'm going to apply your inspiring idea of using rub"n"buff on it... the gold leaf finial stands out beautifully among the other neutrals. Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week!~Poppy

  27. I do love that pretty cabinet of yours filled with all that gorgeous silver and pretties!

    Had just enough time to get my link on earlier today. Holly came then we dashed out the door after she left to go to Pueblo as I needed envelopes for our newsletter. Can you believe we have to go 50miles to get envelopes!!

    It's now past 10 and we just got home but wanted to thank you for the fun party this week!

  36. Hi Marty!
    I haven't dropped in on you in awhile so sorry. But I decided to take a peak on your TT Tuesday. I really like what you did to your finial. That Rub N Buff seems like a great product. I have an ornate wall frame that is in need of something and I think this product might be what it needs. You used gold...I am hoping it is sold at Home Depot or Lowes? Love how the top of your beautiful china looks. Really nice! Well take care and I am going to drop in on your other participants. Hugs!
