I went a little over the top on this frenchy table redesign. I knew I wanted to do something dramatic, and inspiration struck this past weekend.
It's the table from a few post ago.
I honestly can't tell you exactly how many layers of primer, gesso, and paint I applied to this one. A little dry brushing, a little dripping, and here you go.
After I finished painting, the top just seemed too plain to me. So, remember the netting stencil I used here? I did the same thing with a 50 cent synthetic table cloth, and got this design.
After stenciling, I did some dry brushing and sanding on top.
I love the way it turned out. What do you think?
