A Table's Tale - From Drab to FAB!

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!

Another Before/After
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!
