I needed a coffee table for my living room. I had been using a tea table of my mother's, but it was too small. So, since I was home today for July 4th, I got a wild hair.
The graphic is from The Graphics Fairy. First coat of paint is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in "Old White" - applied haphazardly. Second coat is Behr's "Silver Screen" in a 50/50 wash with water. The floral trim and the groove were painted with Sherwin-Williams "White Dogwood", which is a great pink that isn't Disney Princess pink, nor does it scream "I AM PINK!" It's perfect.
I transferred the graphic using a stylus and graphite. It's outlined and painted with a Sharpie paint marker. After it dried, I sanded it lightly and then gave it another wash with the Silver Screen to soften and age it.
Both sides have the Paris wreath graphic from The Graphics Fairy. Same transfer & wash method as the top.
For the front and rear panels, I used some French/English script invoices from a scrapbooking paper pad called "Life's Journey". After they dried, I dry brushed them with the ASCP and wiped it off, then the same with the Silver Screen wash. This softened the colors of the paper and aged them a bit.

I think it turned out OK for my first endeavor.
