Coffee Table Makeover

Coffee Table Makeover

Prima Transfer Design

I have one of those Target Shabby Chic coffee tables.  It was originally a sort of off white and over time it yellowed and look dingy.  So, I decided it was time for a makeover.  I decided to paint it white using chalk paint and add a pretty transfer. 

Prima Design 

Before painting it, I sanded it very well.

I gave it two coats of paint and sanded between each coat. 

Here you can see all the detail work on the table.  

 I picked a Prima transfer for my table.  This one was a set of three that could be used all together or in sections.

I had to wait and let the new finish on my table dry for about 5 days to make sure that the transfer wouldn't fail. So, I waited.....

Finally, I was able to transfer the image on to my table and it turned out so pretty.

Then I gave it a nice wax coating to protect the table and the transfer and to give it a nice finish. 

Our Bella kept me company while I was taking photos. 

If you are considering making over a piece of furniture this is a great option.  There is a learning curve and I made a few mistakes along the way.  In the end, I managed to get it all to work out and it looks fabulous.  I am very pleased with this project.
