I removed the sewing machine, sanded and primed with my fav Kilz primer.
excuse my poor iphone pic quality! :/
I painted the table a pretty shade of satin apple green. It was great!.....and PLAIN BORRRRRING..
I needed something. So I busted out the vinyl appliques I had stashed from a previous trip to IKEA.
Stuck those bad boys on!
I loved the color contrast of the green and black. I thought I was all done! Closed the workshop up for the night ready to put a coat of poly on in the morning.
I arrived the next day to find the vinyl peeling up around the edges...grrrrr
All I had to do was peel the vinyl off and add apoxy to keep them in place right?.....
I peeled off a piece of the vinyl and the entire applique took the paint off with it!! I was HORRIFIED!
My heart sank and I wanted to
...WHAT THA?? Bless his heart!!
Then I looked at the wood grain showing thru and I realized that it was cool....my husband WAS right! (for once) :)
I ran with it and decided to distress the heck out of it and put on an antique glaze and see what happens! I added a cute knob from Hobby Lobby and with my eyes wide shut I poly-ed it and called it done! What do you think???
