Somebody save me ..............Part 2

After a couple of coats of antique white homemade chalk paint , the table is ready for the fun part - lets pretty it up . I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it , but without an o/head projector or any decals , I had to improvise..... I printed my image onto iron on transfer paper and hoped for the best!!!!! Ok it was a bit hit and miss (my iron doesn't get hot enough really)but the effect was what I wanted - grainy, faded and very vintage I was quite pleased after everything was done.
A few little twiddly bits around the outer edges and a nice coat of varnish - the coffee table from hell now able to sit back in the living room and be admired (I hope), and you've probably guessed already , the daughter who was throwing it out , has asked if she can have it back!!!!! Whats a Mum to do ??? Happy makings Bev xx
