Fleur de Lis Coffee Table

I found this darling little table while I was shopping one day.  It was maple and was in great shape, but I knew I couldn't sell it the way it was.  My husband, the master painter in our house, painted the table white just to get a base on it.

I was searching for a perfect fleur de lis image one day on the internet and I came across this one.  Love at first sight.  I found the source on Etsy and the image was only $1.  It comes digitally delivered in a mirror and regular view.  If you love it as much as I do, here is the link.  It's by Graphique.
After I got the image on the table using my favorite transfer method, reverse mod podge, I lined off my stripes with frog tape.  Use frog tape to do this, not the blue painters tape.  I have ruined so many projects with the blue tape it's not even funny.
This is a drop leaf coffee table and when open it is quite large.  Perfect for kids to play games at, and when you need just a normal size table, simply snap the leaves back down.  I love the clean crisp look of a simple black and white design.
Thanks for your visit.

I love the table and the graphic is great. But, my favorite part is those black stripes and how they intersect.

Great table, Maggie! I love the shape of it when it is fully open. I'm sure the drop leaf would come in handy in many living rooms. Love the image.

Merci Mimi said...

Hi Maggie, I love your work. A few weeks ago you posted a dresser with a beautiful graphic labeled French Quarter. There was a link where to find it and now it's gone. Is it possible to let me know where you found that graphic?? Thank you. Kim If you can send me your email address I will send you mine so you can let me know if still available.
