Christmas End Table Part 1

I have had this table since the beginning of the summer and kept debating what to do with it. I just couldn't seem to settle on an idea. So it has sat...untouched...for months.

This past week I got a catalogue in the mail. A catalogue that held creative gold! I spotted a Christmas card with text I fell in love with. It was love at first sight!

Today I enlarged the text and photocopied it onto a transparency. I pulled out my overhead projector (best $10 I ever spent at a Yard Sale!) and got to work.

I mean really, can't you see why I fell in love with this? It is awesome!

I traced the text onto my table.

I began painting.

I wasn't loving the table like I thought I would. Until...

I started painting the more intricate letters, the love came rushing back.

With every letter I loved the table more and more!

It is looking amazing!

I love, love, love, love how this looks!

The only problem is the intricate lettering is taking FOREVER! will have to wait until Monday to see what the final product will be.

  1. Cool idea of using a projector for the letters! Planning on doing the same but on a bench - different message!


I absolutely love to get comments! Drop me a note and let me hear what you think. Thanks. -Heidi
