Curb Side Treasure!

My husband, daughter and I were driving home one Sunday several weeks ago and we all spotted the beautiful old mahogany magazine table at the same time.

My daughter yelled out “Look at that!”
I pulled the car over.
My husband jumped out to save it from the curb and put in our trunk.
No one saw us … I don’t believe.

But if they are reading now I don’t think they would even recognize the table they kicked to the curb. She’s all pretty now thanks to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen, a wash of Old White, and some beautiful French label graphics from The Graphics Fairy.

* Unfortunately I was so excited to begin painting this gem that I forgot to take a before photo. But imagine dark scratched mahogany wood longing to be painted.*

And she shines even brighter thanks to my friend Kira of Abigail Thomas Photography! Kira has photographed many of my painted pieces however her specialty is photographing kids and families. Give her a call! Thank you, Kira!

  2. Hi Kristin, I have been using the same method and have not been as successful at having the whole transfer stick. What is your secret?

  3. Your blog works very well too. It’s user friendly. I don’t know how to do a blog, is it hard to learn? Your curbside treasure is lovely. Can you direct me to a tutorial on the Artisan Enhancements Transfer Gel? Lot’s of questions, sorry you’re probably very busy! Meris
