Beadboard Postcard

I made several of my beadboard signs for a woman in California recently, and she threw a challenge my way.  She wanted to know if I could paint the design from my Postcard Table

…onto beadboard as well.  For me, smaller designs are much more difficult to reproduce neatly.  I think my hand gets shakier the more exact I try to be!

I think this one turned out well, though.  The final “sign” was 18” wide by 11” tall, in order to keep the proportions correct.  I gave the beadboard a heavily distressed, crackle-y finish, and glazed it in three colors to give the appearance of much weathering.

It was a fun challenge!

Hmmm…I wonder how the French Chocolate table would translate to beadboard??
