This week I'm finalizing projects I want to take to the Little French Flea Market. I found this sweet little table at another flea market last month and I have to confess, I have never found a drop leaf table like this I didn't want to drag home. It still had the original wood finish that was not in good shape and it was very boring so I thought I would romanticize it a little.
It got a coat of Annie Sloan Old White and then I used my Modern Masters crackle finish. I confess I might have gotten a little carried away with it. I usually just use it in spots but I did the whole top with the crackle. I had some rose cut outs that I bought years ago on Ebay so I arranged them on paper and then Xeroxed them to fit the curve of the table.
The center of the table was too plain so I added a typography image I found on Pinterest. You can see that I had some trouble with the reverse mod podge that I did but it adds to the vintage charm.
The handle was broken that came with the table so I added an antique drawer pull. Then I trimmed the table out in a little gold paint to add to the vintage patina.
I think the table is pretty and romantic. These little pieces are so versatile they can be used almost anywhere.
Thanks for stopping by.
