I managed to finish the makeover on the little brown end table.
Paint for thirty minutes, throw it in the back of truck, wait for another break in the rain, and repeat.
Krylon Greek Stone spray paint - two light coats.
Folks, I have been calling this Creek Stone.
Then I put on my glasses.
Creek Stone is a better name - it is greenish gray.
Just like a creek stone.
Sanded all over.
Especially the top.
Had to get it very smooth ...
...To apply a coat of Americana Decor Chalky Finish in Lace.
Used a fine grit sanding sponge and a rough paper towel to burnish the finish to a low gloss.
Used a French label from
The Graphics Fairy.
Reverse printed on waxed paper for the transfer.
Distressed Donna looks on with approval.
Notice the sun came out when I was trying to take the reveal pics.
Ten minutes after, the rain came down in buckets!
Now in Booth C-23, Riverfront Antique Mall in North Augusta, SC.
A French Label Table.
Thank you very much for all the emails and FB messages about the extreme flooding here in South Carolina.
We are lucky the city of Aiken is mostly on a ridge.
Many of my beloved shopping places were flooded in Columbia and Charleston.
Please send prayers to those people.
We know how to prepare for thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes, but rain which NEVER stopped, overwhelmed us.
Unfortunately of the trees uprooted by the saturated ground was Maid Marion, one of our beloved White Oaks.
Read about the plight of Maid Marion HERE.
She fell for over half a block.
In the last few weeks an arborist and an engineer had figured out a way to stabilize her upper half.
There is a pile of short logs for people to take a piece away.
Hopefully the city will continue to saw off pieces.
And the rest will be used as mulch in the parkways.
She will be missed.
