Gorgeous Grey

You'll remember this table from my "Quick Table Project" post. I've been dying to give it a little something extra. Inspiration struck yesterday.





I love deep shades of grey. You've seen it as an undertone for my "Old World" finishes. Well, this time I did the reverse. I have my original white undertone,




with a deep shade of grey as the top coat. I tranferred one of my favorite vintage images to the top, and gave it a little sanding.










I'm loving the gorgeous grey.




I've received lots of emails asking me about my images. I've collected ephemera for many, many years. The images I use are from my own collection.

More projects await. See ya soon.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous Rosemary! Since I won my goodies from you I'm really loving the grey tone...it may start a slippery slope of things turning grey which I'm sure just thrills my husband LOL. The pushpins I ordered from Etsy came a couple of weeks ago and they look so perfect on my corkboard:) Loving it sooo much!!!
