Two tone "French Invoice" Parlor Table

Good Monday to you my BEAUTIES!
Man am I whooped...
but not enough to keep me from finishing a project.
We were camping all week in BEAUTIFUL Traverse City,
and when we pulled up in the driveway on Saturday I had 3 messages
from my booth that I sold some big items...UMMMM??? OOPS
I have been so busy with the family stuff this summer
that I have not been painting a ton..

Well I had to get while hubby unpacked the camper..I started painting.
I had this adorable parlor table from Goodwill.
I had wished the top was in better condition because I might have saved the detail
but it was  chipping and popping in too many places..even though in this picture you can't see it.

I decided to do a two tone color on it to make the base POP a little. I used CeCe Caldwells
Smokey Mountain and  Alaskan Tundra.

Here is where the fun started. I have just recently learned how to not only IMPORT images into my
Silhouette, but then how to trace and cut them.
So I imported THE GRAPHICS FAIRYS, French Invoice into my
silhouette program and cut out a vinyl stencil.

I laid it on top and painted on the invoice with some white acrylic paint.
When it was dry I distressed the table and waxed and buffed the whole thing.

I love how the two colors really makes the base stand out more now..Not lost to all the pine color.

So there is one thing that will be heading to the booth Today!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and go on to have a
BEAUTIFUL day! HUGE favor to ask!! I made the TOP TEN in a local competition for MISSION MAKEOVER....I NEED YOUR HELP...All I need you to do is to CLICK on the link and LIKE my FRENCH ARMOIRE....You can see that makeover HERE...
I will love you forever...Even though I already do....
