A Whimsical Makeover - A Few Good Stripes

This is a post that should have happened months ago. I painted this sweet little table back in March but just photographed it today.

 It has been sitting in my basement. 

Waiting patiently.

Well...Today is the day. I will finally let this piece be seen by the public.

Before:
It has beautiful lines. It is well made and functional. However, it is not very pretty.
I had this piece in mind for the flood of college students that are rushing to Dekalb this week. 
Something fun.
Something stylish.
Something quality yet affordable.

After:


This pieces was painted in ASCP French Linen with an Old Violet stripe. I sealed it with clear wax. 
I also painted the hardware to give the illusion of "invisible hardware".

This piece is going to the shop today. :)
 FYI...I purchase my Chalk Paint from Carter's Cottage. :) 

 Don't forget, I am now your online location for Toft Touch Soaps!
