From Tired to Time Table

  Check out this old drum table that I picked up at an auction last year.  I love this style of table, simple and elegant.  Again, I knew as soon as I seen it what I wanted to do with it. Any guesses so far?  Stay tuned! 

  After a good bath with vinegar and water it was ready for paint.  It would take three coats of General Finishes Milk Paint in Antique White.  With a little dry brushing in Driftwood in between coats, only to the top.  I want this piece to have that aged feeling.

  Next up, some numbers and a French typography graphic from The Graphics Fairy. I did use stencils for the numbers and then drew the graphics on with a black Oil Sharpie.  After everything is complete, I will add a black glaze over the top and Ebony wax on the rest of the piece.  Last thing to do, use General Finishs Flat Performce Polyurethane. 

  Yes, it is adorable, ready for a beautiful room! 

  Thank you so much for checking in on my junk adventures! 

  Peace, love & junk!
