Table Transformation


2012 003

This table has been through transformations over the years. It started out life as a cute little plant stand that I pick up at Hobby Lobby for about $10. Eventually I added a glass top and used it as a bedside table. It eventually made it to the living room. One day, a bee got in my bonnet and decided the top needed to be bigger. I picked up a table top from Lowe’s (1" x 36" x 36" Stain Kiln-Dried Kiln-Dried Elliotis Pine Round).
Zoomed:  1" x 36" x 36" Stain Kiln-Dried Kiln-Dried Elliotis Pine Round

I dug though the hardware in the garage and used large washers and screws to attach the table top.

I then painted the top with a can of leftover off- white paint I found in my stash.2012 014
Not bad, huh?

After serving me well in the living room, the table was calling for a change.  Lesley over at Saving Grace was showing me one of her latest projects and I knew what I wanted to do.
I borrowed an overhead projector from my friend. The old overheads can be found all over Craigslist and through school district auctions for pennies on the dollar.

I printed the clock and “Vins” clipart on overhead transparencies.

I lined up the table a adjusted the size. I then used black craft paint and followed the lines.

From the Vin sign, I used just the grape cluster.

I will finish the table with Johnson Wax.

I will grab a good read and steep a cup of tea.

  19. I love this! It's such a creative and fun way to spice up and transform. I've seen a few other projects with projectors here and there and now I'm starting to wonder if I should try and get my hands on one as well, haha. Thank you for sharing; the end result was lovely.
