Inspired by Chocolate, French Parlor Table Makeover

Welcome back my Beauties!
Today is the day for another DIY Furniture Girls
Themed Makeover.
This months THEME is CHOCOLATE.

This was the table I started with.
It was less than beautiful.
It had been beaten up pretty bad but I love the simple little shape of it.

Since I knew I was going to be staining the top a Rich Chocolate color I needed to get the old finish off.
I used my Rockwell orbital sander to make quick work of it.
The finish was so old it only took about 30 seconds for all of the finish to come off.

 Once I had the old finish off and it was clean I could start staining it. 
I started making over the top by using Repurposed Stain in Cast Iron Black

While the top was drying I painted the base using Americana Maxx Gloss in Melon

Now that the top was dry I could start transferring my graphic to the top.
I grabbed some carbon paper   and started tracing my French Chocolate graphic from the Graphics Fairy. After tracing I used white acrylic paint to paint on my lettering.
After a little distressing I sealed the top with some General finishes Satin finish and she looked good enough to eat!

She looks a bit different now doesn't she?

The hardest part of the makeover was NOT eating the Chocolate while I was photographing.

I hope you enjoyed this makeover and you will check out the rest of my DIY Furniture Girl Friends 
We would LOVE to hear what you think!
