Hello blogger friends hope your day is starting out well.
I wanted to take a quick minute to share a coffee table redo that I finished recently.
I do not have a before picture. So sorry. I’m a terrible blogger because I forgot to take one, but it was a plain, light brown stain that was pretty much worn off everywhere but the legs.
Here’s the finished product.
I painted it with a mixture of Annie Sloan’s “Old White” and “Pure White” which gave me this gorgeous, buttery soft, white. I used two-thirds "Old White" and one-third "Pure White."
I used Photoshop to enlarge and print my graphic and traced it on using the chalk method. I’m sure you’ve seen it around blogland. You rub chalk on back of design and then trace it onto the table with a ball point pen.
I then filled in the design using Sharpie markers. Easy peasy.
Tip: Be sure to seal the finished image with a poly sealer that does not yellow as the Sharpie will smear.
I then applied two coats of a soft clear wax and buffed lightly.
I really like the embellishments I added to the sides. Don’t you?
Have a great weekend and Happy Father’s day to all the Fathers out there.
