A to Z Table

I've been showing you piles of stuff on top of this table, but not the table itself.



The before.





You really can't tell here, but this is one of those thin, sprayed on factory finishes, with the little black specks in it.  So, it had to go.  I applied a grey base coat, followed by layers and layers of white paint, and texture.  I then stenciled the alphabet in dark grey, and did some distressing.







So, that's what it looks like, when you subtract this.



Still painting, and organizing like crazy for my upcoming show.  See ya soon.
