ART and SOUL table


I hope you are all having a Beautiful week so far. Our week has been pretty rough (with Grandpa's funeral and loosing our neighbor too) but we are keeping our heads up and our hearts open.

I thought I would show you this table I did last week. I didn't even think about it when I did it, but as I posted yesterday ARTPRIZE started here
I thought it was only fitting to show you my ART and SOUL table.

I had gotten this..I am not even gonna be nice..it was NASTY, table at Goodwill for about $5.
The top was GROSS..I don't want to know what that gunk was on the top but it seemed to be a mixture between grease and gum. Whatever it was..I scrubbed the heck out of it and then sanded the top.

I got out my CeCe Caldwells paints...and painted the base in Georgia Clay and the top in Hershey Brown. I then applied the wax and while that was curing I went to my NEW silhouette machine.


This was my first time trying and I honestly couldn't believe how easy it was.

I typed out one of my favorite quotes and set it to cut.

once the wax was cured and buffed I added my stencil. I first did the letters in the leg color and
then went over top of that with white.

When It was all dry I distressed it and waxed it.

I just love how this nasty old table is now a beautiful piece.  I love that when I buffed the top color the natural wood color came through adding to its richness.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial; and I hope you have a BEAUTIFUL day.
