So, today I only have "after" shots. And they're not especially great.
Anyway, I bought this cute little table from another vendor in my mall. I originally thought I'd paint the center in blackboard paint. But I changed my mind. I was inspired by some of the pieces done by Rosemary at Villabarnes. So I gave it two coats of Paris Gray, then dry brushed it in Old White.
I grabbed a great French graphic from Karen at The Graphics Fairy and used the freezer paper method for transferring the image. You can read about that here.
The freezer paper method was new to me. I've done a few other image transfers using carbon paper. (You can see those here). I had a couple of spots that were too wet and the image blurred. A little touch up with some paint and a sharpie did the trick. I love the way it turned out.
I think it's worth the aggravation!
I'm linking up to these great parties this week:
