Found this old Bench and had an idea.
I lightly sanded the top to remove the super shiny gloss finish.
I used chalk paint to cover only wear my image was going to be placed and transferred.
Removed image, let dry. This was a Mod Podge image transfer, for more information and how to, please check the web.
Next I painted the piece in Dark Coalmine - homemade chalk paint. There are several different ways to make chalkpaint - this is the Plaster of Paris recipe: 3parts paint - 1 part plaster or paris, small amounts of water.
After the painting and stenciling, I sealed the top with dark wax.
Put my new darling French Bench in my home
- Stencil, laser image, paint, dark wax. (Piece was found at local shop.)
