I'm not sure where I found this image. It was probably on Pinterest, but I fell in love with it the moment I saw it. I painted the entire piece with Old White and applied my image as I always do in the reverse mod podge style. I know I keep showing you my pieces that I use this technique on, but if you love hand painted pieces and are not a true artist, this is the next best thing.
I went around the edges and the legs with a deep gray paint and then topped it with Modern Master's gold paint. This gave me the layered worn look I was going for when I heavily sanded everything in the end.
While I was removing the original hardware, I dropped one of the little pieces that went with one of the drawer pulls. I'll be looking for that little piece for the next five years. I used these little inexpensive wooden knobs just to stay with the funkiness of the makeover this little table was receiving.
Next I used an inexpensive stencil and gave the table a little more detail to add to the old world Frenchy style I was trying to give this very traditional table.
It took me a while to get this project finished because I was participating in my third flea market in five months. Yikes! I survived, but I don't think I will be doing that again. In the meantime, this little cutie visited us over Memorial Day weekend. My little grandson will be a year old this month. Time flies when you're totally smitten. He's a true California boy.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to show you some more new projects very soon.
I may be partying at...
