French Advertisement Tables – Trash to Treasure

Hey guys- so today is the last Tuesday for Trash to Treasure {Best of the Archives} with a few of my blogging BFFs.  It’s been so much fun revisiting some of our favorite old makeovers!  For the big finale I’m bringing back these beauties from 2014:

These were two separate makeover posts back in the day, but I’m combining them here for you – and you can visit the original posts for more detailed information.  🙂

I painted them both and then I chose vintage French advertisement graphics to transfer onto them.  The graphics were printed onto transparency paper and transferred with an overhead projector (that I got from a local school) and a pencil.

Below is the 1st finished table – you can read more about this one HERE.

And what did I use to draw over the pencil?  Sharpies!  They can be so much easier than painting when you have an intricate design.  Learn more about the 2nd table (below) HERE.
