more freezer paper FRENCH END TABLE

Here is another fun project I was working on. I have been trying out freezer paper for a
few weeks and then kind of forgot about it, until I got a hold of this baby. 


It was your typical 70's end table with a plastic faux engraved door???? Whatever...:) So I sanded her down and gave her a good coat of primer. I had no idea how the paint would stick to the plastic, but have no fear...It was not a problem.

Once the primer was dry I gave her a coat of a pale gray color. This is where I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do to the top. She sat in the garage for a few days while I pondered....(forgot, pondered, same thing...)

Then while strolling through the the graphics fairy I found this great graphic.


So I printed out my graphic on my freezer paper in reverse image and burnished it on the table. (you can see that tutorial HERE
I gave her a good distressing and a good coat of poly when she was dry....and here she is..as beautiful as ever. Have a BEAUTIFUL day.

That turned out really lovely! I have that graphic saved also. I like how it came out on your table so that it looks a little faded, as if it was on there for awhile.

I never fail to be entranced by refurbished furniture and a Graphics Fairy image, especially when it's painted white - lovely. (Via Graphics Fairy).
