Découpage. French for “trimmings.” Seems I’ve been trimming just about anything not moving–ah, c’est la vie! ; D
The back story—
Mom and my bf traded this ↓ bookcase for this ↓ drum table–which became the base of mom’s breakfast table, with a larger glass round! Very cottage-y!
UnTIL I found thIS table base. Then this one became orphaned, used here and there, and eventually landed for sale in the antique mall.
But it languished -unwanted- so I pulled it out for a facelift~ découpage-style!
I took it with me to Kane Co this past weekend, but it was such a bad market—from the holiday weekend to all their storms~boohoo~it didn’t sell. Now it’s baCK at the antique mall -with its NeW LooK- fingers crossed . . .
I refreshed the white paint job with touches of thinned out Revere Pewter for contrast. And then I découpaged the top–which sadly, was a leather top in BaD condition.
At the end, I waxed it clear and added touches of CeCe’s Light Aging Wax.
I think it looks FABulous now, and hope this change will attract a new home and appreciation for it!
I’m sharing this project with these inCREDible linky parties!
