Turquoise French Key table using Freezer Paper Transfer

Good Morning my Beauties!
Oh my..I hope you all had a Beautiful weekend..It was cold and still snowy here in Michigan, but we
got to see the Sun all day on St. Patrick's Day...It was Glorious.
For once I wasn't panicking to get a project done by Sunday either.
I got this one done during the week!! WOO HOO!!
Its not often I am ahead of schedule...I am sure it won't last long.

You see in my joy at being ahead of schedule...I forgot to take a BEFORE picture...
I didn't remember until I had a first coat on.
Good thing I didn't hurt myself patting myself on the back at being ahead of schedule...LOL!

I painted this cute little table with some CeCe Caldwells Sante Fe Turquoise.
I have been itching to use this spring color on something and this table was perfect.

But the table needed a little more SOMETHING...
GRAPHICS FAIRY and Some Freezer Paper to the RESCUE~!
You can see how to do the Freezer Paper transfer HERE.
I printed it off in reverse and applied it to the table.
Its been a while since I have done one and for the first time in a while it worked FIRST TRY...
I almost couldn't believe it! :)

Here it is in all its GLORY..The Frenchy, Vintage Key Goodness! 
Once the ink was dry I sprayed it with Poly to seal the ink.
I then distressed and waxed the whole thing.

I think you will agree, it was perfect for this table.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and even more, I hope you have

Karin-That turned out great. Okay- that looks bigger than a normal sized sheet of paper through. Did you print it out in sections or is it a small table top? Just curious-I have never tried this either- xo Dina
