I finally finished a coffee table
that's been sitting in my garage
since last April! Poor thing has
been used for the last few months
as a stand and "catch all" for my
other painting projects.. I thought
it high time she receives a makeover too!
This is the only before picture I could
find of the coffee table, it was taken in
the back of my truck.. upside down..
I picked her up at Goodwill for a song!
I sanded it down, painted it white,
shabbied her up.. just a bit ~
For me, there was just something missing..
So, I hopped on over to Graphics Fairy
to see what I could find.
I found this wonderful French Typography
saved it to my computer, then enlarged it
by 250%. It printed out onto 6 sheets of
paper. I trimmed the paper down, taped it
all together (like a puzzle.. lol).
I put carbon paper underneath my copies,
and drew with pencil on top of my
copied paper so that the design would
"print" off onto my table from the carbon paper.
(I wish I would've taken a picture for ya'll
to see, but, once I get started on something
I get so excited to get going, I forget to
take pictures.. sooo sorry!!)
After tracing over the entire graphic,
I took a Sharpie Paint Pen and filled it in.
This is the end result!
As you can see, I screwed the "B" up
a little bit.. but, overall I think
it turned out great!
What do you think?
I haven't waxed her yet, I'm still
debating whether or not to
shabby over the graphic or not.
On another note, how many of you
are headed to Renningers this weekend?
I am sooo excited, I can hardly contain myself!
I am planning on going all 3 days and
I hope I recognize some people from blogland!!
If you recognize me, please say hi, I'd
love to meet you!
