Turquoise French Script Table Makeover

Hi friends, today I have a bright and fun table makeover to share with you!  This vintage table started out very brown and neglected.  (And unfortunately it sat in my garage for over a year before it got its new look- but it was worth the wait!)

First, it got a major color boost with Valspar Rushing Stream (a free paint sample I got at Lowe’s).

However it needed more than just a color update so I chose a French typography graphic from The Graphics Fairy website to add to it.  I printed the graphic across two pages to enlarge it a bit and gently taped the corners.  Since the table top was leather I traced all the letters with my pen, pressing hard.  The lines imprinted onto the leather and then I carefully painted them all with a tiny paintbrush and some white DecoArt craft paint.

It took a couple of hours to paint the lettering but it turned out pretty good, if I do say so!   😉

I also decided the turquoise was just a little too bright so I dry brushed Old White Chalk Paint® all over it to soften it up.  (You can learn more about dry brushing HERE.)  Then I protected it all with some Annie Sloan clear wax.

I love how cheerful this table is now!  It’s a great accent piece for any room.

    Very pretty, love the color! You must have lots of patience to hand paint all of the lettering. Cute carpet underneath also….I haven’t seen one of those boards in years!

      Thank you, Dawn! The lettering was a miracle because I usually have a shaky hand, but I like how it turned out. 🙂
