French Garden Table

 Wow...What a whirlwind week I had...I guess you could say that for the last month!!  My son Garret, graduated from High school on Friday...Heavy Sigh!!
We had a huge party for him yesterday...It was so much fun!!!  I thank God everyday for my wonderful friends and family!!

Anyway....that's another post for another day...Today I'm going to share this little table I picked up at a garage sale.  I'm sure it had a glass center at one time, but when I found it, there was a piece of unfinished wood instead....That made my job so easy.  :)

I painted it with some homemade chalk paint and then grabbed a stencil I had purchased online at Etsy here:
They have some wonderful stencil and I'm always happy when I can send a fellow "Etsyian" some love!  :)

I also added a couple of stamps, just for fun...
Painted  two protective coats of polyacrlic and sent it down to the shop....  
That's it for now...but I'm back and have a ton of goodies to do keep in touch!! :)
(I will be linking up to many of the parties on my side bar).


  1. Oooh the table is so nice! The French script really makes it special! I love all the French and vintage items in your shop space!! Would you believe I have never done Mod Podge before? Seeing your pretty things makes me want to try !

  2. Oh do try it...It opens up so many doors and possibilities! :)

  3. How wonderful! I love how your outdoor table turned out. I think french script always makes things look so chic. Nicely done!

  4. Cute, cute, cute. Thanks so much for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  5. That table is adorable! I found your blog through A Stroll Thru Life and I am your newest follower & I am going to follow you on bloglovin. Would love for you to stop by my blog sometime and take a look.
    Thanks, Patty

  6. Love the little paris stamp you added... very cute touch!

  7. Found your blog thru Shabbilicious Friday Link/ Shabby art boutique. Sure like your table, great idea putting the stenciled lettering on it. People don't seem to get rid of things on the roadside where I live, not that I know of anyway. We stay home a whole bunch so I miss alot out here a few miles from town.
    I'll have to look into that website for stencils. Glad to find your blog, great projects.

  8. Seriously this is so COOL!! I love it!! Come link up at my Paint Party!

    HOpe to see you soon

  9. Hey we must be neighbors, your table is soo cute! Thanks for the comment, I'm following.

  10. What a sweet little table. Thank you for sharing this at Shabbilicious Friday.
