Postcard Table

Red Hen Home 

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


So Korrie, 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...
ugly!


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


 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 sanded the image...



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



 


Thanks for your wonderful inspiration Korrie!

  26. Wow! I adore this table! I am going to have to think about doing one of those for myself! How do you feel about the chalk paint? I am considering jumping in and giving it a try...but it is so expensive... Any suggestions? Is it worth it?
