I’ve wanted to try another image transfer project for a while (ever since this French graphic cabinet last year) but it took me a long time to find another method that would work better for me. When I found this table, I knew it would be the perfect candidate for another transfer attempt. It had some scratches on top but was otherwise in great condition.
First I painted the table in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Paris Grey. Then I found a French typography graphic I liked on The Graphics Fairy website and printed it on transparency paper. I borrowed an overhead projector from a friend, but I hope to find a used one somewhere that I can keep!
I traced the image with a pencil and then went over it with a fine-tip oil-based Sharpie paint marker. I filled the letters in with the same type of Sharpie, but with a medium tip. (I bought the markers at Michaels.) Thank God the boys both took long naps that day!
Then I distressed lightly and waxed the table with both clear and dark wax from Annie Sloan.
I’m happy with how it turned out and I plan on looking for more pieces to transfer images onto!
