Kitchen Table with French Script


Sometimes a mistake can lead to something unexpectedly wonderful.  
That's exactly what happened here. 
Wanting to re-stain the top of my kitchen table top, 
 I began to sand.....

Whoops! 

Things got out of hand.  
What I thought was solid pine was actually veneer, 
and before I knew it, there was an ugly divot in the table top.
Hey, things happen! 
Re-staining wasn't going to work 
so......

On to Plan B:  painting the table top.  
(Do you see my helper ready to pounce onto the fresh paint?)


 I painted the table simply,
 imitating those appealing vintage enamel-topped drop leaf tables.
You know the one's I mean. 


But it looked too-oo--o plain,
so I added some lettering, and liked it much better. 


For those who ask, the template is from Cutting Edge Stencils.
You'll find lots to inspire you at their website.


Much better -- 





Enjoy!
