I found this little table at the thrift store,
pretty ugly but $2 and it had potential...

I started out by painting it with chalky paint in an off white.
It went on really smooth and dried almost instantly.
I felt like I was painting with heavy cream.
So far, so good....
When it was dry I traced on a design using carbon paper
and an image from the Graphic Fairy
Next I tried something new, I used a black paint stick to
fill in the design instead of a brush and paint. It is important to choose oil based so the paint dries hard for the next step.
It worked great!
Next I sanded and distressed the whole piece.
It sanded beautifully and came out as smooth as glass!
The oil paint stick distressed beautifully too...
I applied a coat of clear wax to seal the piece when I was finished.
I added a handle on each side.
