Holy Shlamoly! Do you guys know how to come out for a great giveaway, or what?!?! A huge welcome to all our new readers. And a great big thank you for all your lovely comments about my newly made over dresser!
My Damask Dresser had a decidedly modern feel to it, so I decided that up next, I would do something with the projector for all you French, distressed, hand-painted furniture lovers out there (and I bet there are more than just a few.)
I picked up this coffee table at a community yard sale day a few weeks back for $5!! Total steal!
I painted it an off-white with gray undertones. Then I composed a medallion using two different designs that I found on istockphoto.com and projected the medallion on the center of the coffee table top.
The design on my Damask Dresser I wanted to be very precise, so I chose to outline from the projected image with a pencil, then go back in and fill in with the brush. This time, I wanted the design to have a freehand painted feel to it, so I painted with a golden yellow paint on the table top using the projected image as my guide. After I had the entire medallion done, I went back with a gold metallic to add the shadows and give it some dimension. I then distressed the whole coffee table, including the painted medallion to give it an aged look.
Here’s the finished piece:
The more I play around with the projector, the more ideas I have for applications for it. It’s so fun!
