A FREE Table...


A friend was throwing out this old wooden table and of course I said I would take it off her hands!
The top was a mess, with some deep scratches and sticky goop from Contac paper:
I sanded the heck out of it and primed it. I left many of the deep scratches to give it some "character". Then I gave it a spray of Ivory Silk satin spray paint. The Graphics Fairy shared this great graphic from an old french post card. I took the print to Office Max and had them blow it up on 11"x17" paper. I traced it onto the table and then painted it, sanded it and roughed up the edges of the table. A quick coat of a tan glaze finished it off:

  3. Sweet, Patti! Great idea to get it made up larger. I'm curious to know if your friend has seen it since its transformation, too.
