Shabby Chic Coffee Table!


Good mornin' - Good mornin'
rainbows are shining through
Good Mornin'
Bonjour

to you!!!

I'm posting this because I feel bad that I haven't shown a furniture makeover
in awhile - and Dee asked me what was going on ( slave driver ) 
So I'm still only going to announce the winner on Monday 
  I'm out the door in a few minutes,
if that's ok with you ( she asked, wondering what she would do exactly if you said it wasn't) 

Ready to see what a little paint, Gel Transfer and an image from the Graphics Fairy can do to a boring dated table?
Okay - then I'll show you

  14. Which transfer medium did you use? I just tried the Artisan Enhancements and it didn't work at all!!! Do I have to use a laser printer or will an ink jet suffice? I'm frustrated that I spent $35 on a can of stuff which doesn't seem to work.

    1. I used Artisan Enhancements Heather - and yes you need a laser printer - actually went out and bought one for this purpose alone..............
      Bought the cheapest one they had

  31. Your table turned out beautifully! I haven't tried the gel transfer. I didn't have any luck with Mod Podge and gel transfer sounded like the same thing. Have you tried Mod Podge? Is it different??
