Aqua Coffee Table

About a month ago I found a chair on Pinterest that I fell in love with and then I found this blue vintage coffee table that I thought I would try to copy the design on.
My table surface was a lot larger than the chair seat so the design appears much sparser on my table top, but I do like the look of the table with the new design.
This was the chair I fell in love with.  You can see the design is very detailed but it's on a much smaller surface.
I added an applique to add a little more detail.
I used some crackle medium to distress the surface.
Over all I am pretty pleased with the makeover and the finished look of the table reminds me of the Italian Florentine look that was so popular in the '60s.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm linking this up to Debbie Doo's Copy Cat Challenge.
And don't forget about the Ramsign give-away.  I will pick the winner on January 31.

Very pretty, Maggie! That chair is beautiful and I can see why you wanted to copy the design. Love the colors and the applique is always a great finishing touch in my book.

Love that color. Nice job Maggie. I think I like the pattern better on the tray - it's little less busy.
