This table was so ugly, the owner of the thrift store just gave it to me! I promised her I would show a picture of the make over. Someone had painted the top a terrible gold color. I am showing the first picture after sanding all that gunk off.
Next I mixed up a custom color of taupe chalk paint. I was envying the color combo of taupe and cream. I painted on two coats of color and then applied a clear coat of Annie Sloan's soft wax. Then a tiny bit of the dark wax mixed with more clear wax.
I then screen printed my most favorite typography from The Graphics Fairy. Click here to download the image. Thank you, Karen, for providing the French advertisement. I mixed a light gray with a little black ink to achieve the darker gray. Shows up beautifully on the cream! Here is the end result!
