A good friend of mine, we will call her Lainey. It really is her name Really:) We decided to go to Goodwill & look for a fun project to work on together. We found this cool coffee table for $20. It is a really good sturdy table with some great bones. I love the swans! It was also a glass top but it was broken so we asked the good men at Goodwill to remove it. They thought we were a bit nuts but that's okay we knew that we would find another option for the top. What could we do to replace the glass top? Our solution was to go to Home Depot and have a piece of plywood cut to size that would fit ever so nicely in the niche. Once that was done we proceeded to paint the wood with Anne Sloan paint in Old White. Lainey had a beautiful french poem stencil that she had been wanting to try. We put the poem over theOld White and then aged and sealed it with clear wax and then dark wax also from Anne Sloan. We painted it Duck Egg Blue and then waxed it with more clear and dark wax. I love how this turned out, it feels so romantic to me and very, very original..
