Remember this Vintage Stamps Side Table I did a while ago?
Well he's got a twin sister!!
As her twin brother, she started out like this.
Sometimes I know what to do right away, other times I just go with what inspires me during the project. This time was the latter.
I didn't really have a vision other than I wanted it to be
pale blue and white....
So I started painting using my usual homemade chalk paint.
Then I thought I wanted to have a golden rim:)
I did a dry-brushing with white over the gold but I thought I like more gold
so I repainted gold again.
Then I felt like stenciling.
A small but helpful advice:
* Be sure to tape your stencil down when you do a bigger surface*
Because the stencil won't stay in place and more likely to move if you are not careful enough....
Then it looked so pretty ( or so I felt )
I finished it with polyurethane and wax.
Oh I hand painted the handle white.
And here she is!
To me, it looks like a golden sun with blue sky and floating clouds :)
It's a happy looking table.
Here're the photos of the twins ;)
