It’s time for another Themed Furniture Makeover Day! Each month is assigned a theme and the participants makeover a piece of furniture to fit the theme. This month’s theme is distressed.
You may remember earlier this year that my friend and teacher assistant kindly let me have some family treasures that belonged to her aunt. (If you missed out on the vintage goodies shared with me, you can check them out here.) Three tables were among my vintage haul and I couldn’t wait to give this one a makeover.
After cleaning the table and lightly sanding it, I gave it several coats of American Decor Chalky Finish paint in Everlasting.
I used carbon paper to trace the image onto the table and then used an extra fine point and fine point Sharpie over the traced image.
After the Sharpie work was complete, I sanded over the image to give it a distressed look.
The edges of the table and table legs were also lightly distressed.
I waxed the table with American Decor cream wax followed by buffing.
I could not be more please with the end result of this table makeover. This pretty table now has a home in my living room and I can’t wait until my Lavender starts blooming to add a vase to it to go along with the typography.
