(LIGHTBULB) I think I might request a postcard from all of my fabulous friends and readers here. (haha)
This table is amazing in it's original state, the top was slightly damaged as far as finish. I could have easily sanded and stained it and it would be great again. However me being ME.....I wanted to do something different! I have seen a lot of stenciling of labels on pillows and everything else so I didnt want to go that route.
A POST CARD!!!! It was the perfect shape, it had border detailing....it was meant to be! I set out on a step by step process. I decided since I was on a chalk paint makeover frenzy I would use my Olde White for the base color (again no sanding needed...just paint).
Postmarks are on and text on top done.
I started off with a little Valspar glaze
Then added more to the edges for age

Final look....I didnt want to right anything personal. I promised the husband this will be going into the shop! Let's see if Im able to keep that promise peeps.
