Shabby Carved Table

Here is another sweet little table I picked up in my travels.  It's a heavily carved piece and it had a marble insert that was cracked.  I had my husband paint the whole piece with my favorite Old White.
I used a Graphics Fairy image of an old French label.  I opted for the image without the writing and I kind of wished I had used the full label image, but I'm still happy with the end result.
I have a real fondness for heavily carved pieces so I couldn't pass this one up.
Although I had some flaws in the application of the label to the table, that was still okay.  I do like everything to have a time worn look.
Here is a close up.  It doesn't bother me that some of the transfer rubbed off.  This piece still has a lot of charm.
Here is the image I used from the Graphics Fairy.
Here is a complete image with the writing.  I have a weakness for French perfume labels, and I surprised myself that I didn't use this version, but maybe next time.
Thanks for visiting.
