Map Table with Hairpin Legs4:30:00 AM
What was I thinking you ask?....
Not my style, not my color....
But look down. Check out those great legs!
That is all I wanted from this thrift store find... great legs.
I removed the hairpin legs from the very blue table...
Then after taking apart an old wooden Lazy Susan I re-attached the legs to the bottom of the "new" table top...
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Old Ochre to paint the table top.
Then using an old racing map of our nearby area, I cut a circle that would fit inside the edge of the table.
I found a collection of nautical racing maps at a nearby garage sale. The maps had markings on them from old races including personal chart markings and even a few coffee mug stains... very cool!
The very best part is that these are the waters around us!
I used Decou-Page by DecoArt to decoupage the map to the table. It worked great on this very wrinkled and distressed map.
One coat under the map, a little credit card action to smooth out the bubbles...
then another coat over the top. I also coated the top with a waterproof sealer when the map was dry.
The table is going to a close friend who will be cruising these waters in their new boat.
