Postcard Table

6:00:00 AM

Red Hen Home 

did this awesome Postcard coffee table that 
I just love !!

So I'm giving it a try and I hope I do it justice!

I started with this old table I was using by my front door...

I painted it Old White with my prize can of 
Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint.

( Here is the first coat)

I sanded, distressed and waxed the table.

I printed out the postcard image from The Graphics Fairy
and I drew the image by hand... 
(just don't ask me what it says...)

Then I lightly sanded the image.

And here's the table back by my front door only 
looking a LOT better!


Thanks for your wonderful inspiration Red Hen Home!
