Before I get started I would just like to thank everyone for the nice comments & best wishes I have received on my new booth. It's nice to know I have so many new friends out there cheering me on.
Last month I found the cutest coffee table on Craigslist. It has the curvy legs I like & a beautiful scalloped edge around the top. When I saw the picture I knew just what I wanted to do with her.
Of course she didn't start out like this. This is what she looked like right after I started sanding the top smooth. I nearly forgot to take a before picture.
I started out painting the bottom with DIY chalk paint in Wheatfield by Benjamin Moore. I just did a buffet in the same color, you can see it here.
Then I painted the top in a creamy off white. Now she was ready for a graphic. I knew I'd find the perfect vintage french advertisement from my favorite source for graphics, The Graphics Fairy.
I decided to try a chocolate brown graphic this time. I think it goes nicely with the butter yellow. I projected the image onto the top & painted it in. After a little distressing & two coats of wax, both clear & dark, she was ready for pictures.
Such sexy legs!!
I think I'll name her "Sweet Suzanne". She is available at Collette's Vintage & Antiques Mall in Burton, MI if you want to see her in person. Thanks for stopping by & have a great day! Dee
