Chippy Graphic Table

I just LOVE these little accent tables.  I scoop them up whenever I get the chance.  They are perfect for graphic transfers.  And of-coarse, I got this sweet little graphic from The Graphics Fairy.  For this project I used graphite paper to trace on the transfer after painting a couple of coats of Vintage White on the entire piece.  What’s fun about using this transfer method is you can pick any color of paint for the transfer. I wanted this table to be black and white but I’ve used several accent colors and it never gets boring.  The TV was on, I was sitting in the dining room on my little red stool and before I knew it…it was finished!!!  Next, I took this little table outside, plugged in the power sander and went to town.  I wanted it to look as if the graphic had been there for ages.  It truly just took a matter of seconds and I was done.  I grabbed my clear wax, brushed it on and then buffed it out.  That’s it ~ ADORABLE!  I loaded up the Prius, not just with this table but my in-laws (here visiting from Idaho) and the hubby, off to deliver it to Furniture Affair.  I was called to let me know my Smoky Mountain Dining Room Set had SOLD so there was a big empty space I needed to fill.  So excited for the new owner but YIKES… there is never a dull moment around here!

Off to go junkin, pickin, shopping, whatever you want to call it…may even have to spend some time looking on Craigslist.  I need more inventory!  Anyone have an old barn full of stuff they don’t want anymore???  Heehee!!!
