Last week I gave you a sneak peek of this table I
was starting to work on...
She got a good sanding and a coat of
the new Behr paint+primer in an antique
white (scored the quart for only $3.00 at Home Depot
a few weeks ago) and because it was a mistint it was worth the try
to see what the hype was about.
Overall...I am not sure it is worth the higher price tag for this brand
but the color turned out nice.
I gave it a little distressing magic (aka sanding) and it still
needed a little something to make it pop.
So I decided that since it was a ROUND table....
to make it look like a clock!!
Since I don't have one of those fancy- shmancy
scrapbooking vinyl cutter machines,
I printed out the numerals on paper
and then cut them to fit on the table top.
I then used the "poor man's" transfer method of flipping the image over
and coloring the backside with a charcoal or graphite pencil...
I only outlined the letter otherwise the charcoal gets REALLY messy
(trust me...I learned the hard way!)
Next, flip the image back over and trace the outline once again...
now the charcoal on the back will transfer onto the surface
of the table!
Ok...I obviously need to get out more often!! lol
Anyways...here I am about 1/2 way through...
almost done....ohh my back
(from being hunched over for so long!!)
and then a few highlights...
This took me about 3 hours to complete the numbering...
a little time consuming but so worth it when the end result is this:
I opted not to add hands on the clock as I thought it
would look too cluttered...
what do you think?
I am sharing this here:
and here too!
