VINTAGE BIKE "make the pace" end table redo


So I saw this great graphic featured over on THE GRAPHICS FAIRY last week and knew I had to use it on something....soon. I don't know what it was about it that I loved but it was just such a fun one. I had been in my garage prepping a bunch of stuff so that when the moment struck I would be able to just start painting.

Well, I came across this cute little end table that I had gotten at Goodwill for $2.99..and I just knew...this was the perfect one for it.
So I just used my printer to blow up the graphic and started using my carbon paper to transfer the image to the "key lime" paint job I had given the table...(sorry forgot to take pics of that...:)





Once it was transferred you know I got out my now favorite paint pen..KRINK marker...and just started drawing away. Just as and FYI 
I wanted to let you know that Krink is having a sale on Fab.com. Fab.com is members only and free to join! The sale begins Saturday at 11am. Don't miss out..I just used the KRINK marker on 2 more projects today and don't know how I lived with out them....:)
This is the link to the Sale...It will take you right to the site HERE


Once the paint pen had cured I gave it a good distressing to give it an even more vintage feel, and sprayed on a coat of poly.

I just love the feel of this table and had a fun time with it. I hope you also enjoyed!!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
