Red Rover Come Over

By Stacy in Shepherd, TX.

My baby sister gave me this table she bought from Goodwill.  I've had it a while before I decided I wanted to try decopdging the top in some vintage themed prints I had of old vintage themed playing cards, bingo cards, vintage advertising,  A rooster, a butterfly, drangonflies and several more cool prints.  I first painted the whole table top & base in GF Red Milk paint.  Then I sanded lightly.  I cut to size the vintage prints to fit perfectly on the top surface.  I then glued/decopodged them all In place, smoothing air bubbles out.  It started to take shape.  Excited!  I then let it dry well.  I distressed the base and top surface edge by sanding to give it that worn look.  I wipe with a damp rag.  I used antique walnut stain to really make the table pop.  I love using stain vs wax.  It gives the project more depth.  Oh it looked so vintage chic.  I was in loved.  I Sealed with GF HP topcoat and put two extra coats on top for durability.  Dang I love it.
