Oh. My. Goodness. Must I put words to this post? I am fearful I will show WAY TOO MUCH excitement about the subject matter on each of them. I will do my best to stick to the design and application of the products….and not sound too much like an addict of either beverage.
Jack Daniels. Oh wait….a round oak table. I have wanted to paint the Jack Daniels label onto a furniture surface for months! I wasn’t sure if it would be the front of a dresser or chest…..the top of a desk…..or a table…..but I knew it would present itself to me at some time. When Jamie from The Turquoise Door approached me about painting funky art furniture pieces for her fabulous boutique….I knew this was it!
I lathered on my favorite black chalk paint….Caviar….by Dixie Belle Paint. I then projected an image of the label that I found on the internet onto the table top and traced it out with a piece of white chalk. I then cranked up my favorite honky tonk tunes and colored between the lines. Below is a short snippet of me painting this label by hand…..
I felt that both tables called for a heavy distressing. I knew this would allow the gorgeous natural wood to peak through and offer a sense of rawness.
The rich red of Honky Tonk Red against the raw pattern of the wood grain on the table pedestal is sooooooo yum!!!! I had no choice but to frame it out with black and white stripes which always offer a beautiful back drop for a focal point!
Love the Whimsy Wonderland?
The “spindley” coffee table legs are adorned with metallic gold against white which plays off as stripes.
The heavy distressing and final glazing with Grunge Glaze knock back the color just enough to keep it from being honey…..and even make it a bit grungy.
I had so much fun with both of these tables! It is my hope that someone out there will find this funky art furniture as fun and fabulous as I do….and want them in their home to enjoy every day (and maybe a little Jack Daniels and Coffee too)!
