My Favorite Table

Fav Table-

CRAFT TIP: The table (originally stained wood) received a coat of white flat paint. I used gold Pilot paint marker to write (cursive) flower names in Latin and English.


Wait at least 24 hours for the writing to dry and further embellish with Plaid Gold Wax Metallic Finish. I used my finger to wipe the wax on the edges of the table. I also lightly wiped the wax across some of the writing.
I have more Birthday treats to show you, so be sure to come back later in the week.

Blessings,
Ele

Happy belated birthday, and I love the table
I have an almost identical table upstairs but it is hexagonal, it is dark wood so instead of giving it back to mum I might give it a make over then it won't look so daft in my bedroom!

Love what you did to that table! I have a picture from a magazine from about 9 years ago where they took a dresser and wrote out parts of a book. I loved that idea but that's a lot of work. This is much more manageable.

Hi Ele,
Happy Birthday wishes to you. Love the letters you received and the table is awesome.
I have done this with a paint brush for words, but the paint pen is much easier. Looks wonderful.
Hope your birthday is as special as you.

Love my journal and filling it up!! XO
Hugs, Celestina Marie
