Hello friends and welcome back.
It still amazes me that you all come back each time and I'll try never to take that for granted.
For those of you eager to hear if you won some fabric...well you just have to wait just a smidge
Hey...come back here, no fair peeking at the end of my post.
You are obligated to sit through my table makeover..hehe..
So here we have a trio of very nice Craigs List nesting tables.
As you can see the tops are in rough shape...some rings, burn marks and worn spots.
I think they need a little love and I'm feeling very loving today.
Are you ready to see the fruits of my love fest?
Well what do you think?
They just needed a little ASCP and a French lesson.
Instead of the typical 1-2-3 adorning each table, I chose the French version.
I handpainted the French lettering with ASCP in Graphite.
Here is a little hint when you are painting letters, use a good quality, fine liner artist brush and add enough water to get your paint to an inky consistency.
It will flow much nicer.
I found my font on 1001freefonts.com
Simply print out your words in your chosen font and using graphite paper, trace them onto your project piece.
Then you are ready to paint them...easy!
I started with Old White, then trimmed the tables in Versailles and Paloma.
I think these colors look lovely together.
Then a little distressing, a good waxing, buffing and my tables are reborn!
Now they are ready for my shop at The Fox Den.
I sure hope someone else loves them too.
