We had so much fun working on our Vintage Bicycle Ad Table, we decided to jump right into another furniture piece.
Enter this little yellow table.
Now I like yellow. And I like flowers. But mixed together and slapped on a coffee table…it’s just not really my thing. I loved the shape of the table though, and it’s curvy little legs.
So we started by giving the whole thing a couple coats of Annie Sloan “Old White”. Next, we added this french shoe factory graphic from The Graphics Fairy using Annie Sloan “French Linen”. Once dry, we gave it a light distressing with a fine grit sanding block. We only distressed the table top where the stenciling is, and decided not to distress the rest of the table.
You can find our detailed instructions for painting graphics on furniture here.
We decided to paint part of the legs “French Linen” too. We also used a little Rub-N-Buff in “Ebony” to clean up the feet a little. We used very little because we didn’t want the feet to look brand new, just enough to give the old girl a little pedicure without covering the original patina.
The whole thing got a coat of clear wax, and the table has a piece of glass that fits over the stenciled top.
I had the hardest time photographing this little table! So much so that I almost didn’t share it, but I figured you guys would forgive me my mediocre photography skills.
We link up at these fun parties!
