I haven’t really fallen off the planet, I promise. I just seem to have come down with a serious case of blog ennui.
I don’t think it’s terminal.
All my kids are back in school this week, and the weather seems to be cooling down a little bit. So the urge to work on some furniture has finally hit, and that’s a good thing (I have quite a stash accumulated). One of this week’s projects was this coffee table:
It started out like this:
I doubt you can tell from the picture, but the finish on the top is almost completely gone. What did someone do to that table, I wonder?? Not that I care, really, because it makes refinishing it much easier!
I went through my stash of French typography (mainly courtesy of the Graphics Fairy), and decided this table wanted to look like a vintage French postcard (similar to—but not exactly like—my white postcard table I painted last summer).
There have been a LOT of typography tables since my first French Chocolate table, so it’s a challenge to change things up enough not to be boring! So for this table, I played around with a little color. Although the address is in black, the note that crosses the top corner is actually in a dark charcoal to differentiate it.
But my favorite is the postmark in my favorite color…RED!
So there you have it. I’m still kicking and still painting ;-)
Happy Fall, ya’ll!
