The writing’s on the table

4 08 2011

I picked up this table at Goodwill a few months back for $24.  It was a solid piece with a little mold here and there and two functional drawers on rollers.  I knew it would be perfect for the craft area so I bought it and it sat in my garage.

I love when a table has writing on it and this isn’t the last project I intend to do this to, but when I saw the post at It’s Just Me via Graphics Fairy and I knew this was the design.  I painted the base with my leaf green spray paint (love me some leaf green!!!), sanded and painted this image from Graphics Fairy.  I then put a darker stain over the top and two coats of poly. I debated about distressing and glazing, but in the end decided not to.  I may go back later and work on the base some.


I have a drop leaf table that I want to redo for the basement and I want the #4 on it somehow.  I did see a cute copy of the Cocao graphic at Graphics Fairy only using their name.  That’s an option too.  This could get addictive!
