The weather has been cooperating with cooler temps and no rain. The bright leaves are reaching for the incredibly blue sky.
Yes, folks, it is painting time again!
Take a table, paint it, distress it, and throw a French label from The Graphics Fairy on it.
This is my kind of fall, y'all.
One ugly green table complete with water stains and some kind of funky antiquing applied to it.

Don't you despised the curvy areas where the sander refuses to go?
A generous coat of flat white latex. Shown in the photo.
A generous coat of peachy-pink. Not shown - forgot to take photo.
A vigorous sanding to reveal the layers of green and white beneath the peachy-pink. Not shown - forgot to take photo.
It's this fall fever - the rush to paint, paint, paint.
French label from The Graphics Fairy transferred the old-fashioned way with graphite paper and a permanent Sharpie.
Even after sanding the heck out of that label, I felt it was too stark for the distressed paint job.
So I stirred up a glaze of pink and white craft paint with glazing medium.
After the glaze dried, I added a coat of clear satin poly.
And she is beautiful - waiting for some French pastries which I had none - the cupboards were bare of any cookies or crackers or cakes. I found a crumbly Little Debbie's Fudge Round in the bottom of my pocketbook. I considered painting it to look like a pastry, but decided the idea was a bit crazy.
I looked at her bottom - so wonderfully distressed.
I looked at her top so wonderfully decorated.
She needed something to show off her beauty.
So out came one of my favorite heads.
It was worthy of the table's transformed look.
However, now that I look at this photo, it seems the head is looking for some pastries.
Maybe an old Little Debbie's Fudge Round will do the trick.
