What do claw feet and French script have to do with each other, you ask?
Well, read on and I will show you.
I was at Goodwill the other day and I found this AWESOME table...
I know, when you look at this before photo, it doesn't look very awesome. I mean, it was kind of beat up, scratched up in places
and it had this smoked glass top with tape stuck all over it. But those claw feet - it had potential and I knew I wanted it.
That smoked glass...I wasn't particularly crazy about it and that's where the French script comes in. I went to The Graphics Fairy...Karen is awesome...I've used the word awesome entirely too many times already in this post. Anyway, Karen has literally thousands of graphics that she so graciously shares with us so that we can make all of these fabulous projects. I printed off a few of my favorites and then used them to decoupage onto the glass. While the glass dried, I sanded the entire table, wiped it down then painted it with Rust-oleum Painter's Touch 2x spray paint in "winter gray." Love that paint (it's awesome)!
Once the paint dried, I sanded down the edges to distress it a bit. Then I went over the whole thing with Minwax Dark Walnut stain #2716 (small sections at a time) and wiped it off as I went.
Love these claw and ball feet
and curvy legs.
Here she is all finished!
Another fun Goodwill makeover!
Oh and guess what? I found another lamp to make over with mirror paint. I actually already painted it and it's the one you see peeking out there on the table in the above photo. Now I have matching lamps!
Have a great day!
