A couple of months ago I picked up this little table at the Salvation Army "Boutique". I knew as soon as I saw it I wanted to make it into something FABULOUS for my mom.
Here's how it looked when I found it.
Dirty, dirty, dirty.... all scraped and scuffed up and in need of some TLC.
The first thing I did was paint it with an antique white homemade Chalk Paint.
After distressing it, I decided to replace the handle with this cute little glass pull.
Then, I headed over to The Graphics Fairy blog where I found this lovely French Typography.
I used the Mod Podge Transfer Method to transfer this graphic to the table top. Restore Stuff has a great tutorial for this.
I printed the graphic in reverse (thank you Graphics Fairy!)
and this is how it transfered onto my table top - after I lightly distressed it.
I was very happy with how it turned out and my mom loved it!
What do you think? Have you done any projects using art from the The Graphics Fairy? If not, you should really check her site out!
