French Label Dining Table

Do you ever find something and have an idea and get so "GEEKED"
you can hardly stand it?????
That was me with this project.

I found this table at my local Goodwill and knew what it was meant to look like
So I started sanding, and sanding, and sanding.
Notice in some spots I "super" sanded.???
I did this so that when I stained it the stain would really take to those spots

Then before I did anything more to the top, I flipped it over
and primed the heck out of it.

Then I stated painting the bottom with Heirloom White..
(notice my trigger for my spray paint.....Is it possible to love a piece of plastic this much?)

I then stained the top with a provincial stain, since I was going for a French Provincial look
and thanks to
I found a cool vintage label that I wanted for the top of my table.
Since I don't have any fancy machines like a
Silhouette or Circuit I have to do things free hand.

Luckily my coffee had worn off by then to let my hand be a little more steady.
This is what I ended up with.
Notice the dark spots of stain...It makes it look like an old distressed piece of wood.

Then I got to distressing the base

then finishing off with about a billion coats of Satin polly.
and this is how she turned out....
Isn't she lovely???

I think so....
Have a beautiful day!!!
