I found a little but heavy side table several weeks ago but haven't had the time or the energy to get something done with it. I came across this verse in my bible and it just clicked that this is what I wanted on top. Seems like I absolutely cannot redo a piece of furniture without painting some type of typography on it. Is that a bad thing?
This is how it looked in the beginning. Pretty, but kinda bleh.
I don't think anyone else wanted it because the legs were all wobbly. All I had to do was crank these back down and now I can stand on it with no worries. This little table is heavy & sturdy.
Painted bottom & sanded the top.
Dark stained top, wax & a little distressing on the bottom.
Isn't the detail on this so pretty?
Get'n the words on...
I know they look like they are barely there. I wanted that look on this one. I told you I really like things that are old. To me, this looks almost worn off and I like it. It's not for everybody, but especially on this piece, it suites me.
The Proverbs table is for sale.
PS -- I have had a TON of emails asking how I transfer typography to furniture. It's so easy. I finally created a little tutorial for all ya'll so check back it'll be up soon. :)
