Gossip Table/ Bench Re-design and painting VINYL


I got this great gossip table from my husbands cousin. She knows I love to re-do furniture, so for $20, it was mine.....It was super cute originally, but there were many dings on the wood and I just didn't want to strip and sand and re-stain, so I painted it. Yes, I painted it. Please don't judge. Anyhoo, the seat and back cushion are vinyl and in perfect shape, but not really pretty. Well I have been wanting to try Annie Sloan Chalk paint on fabric...(vinyl is kind of in its own world, but still fabric I believe). So I decided to try to make it look like a cloth fabric with a design. I found a wallpaper design that I liked, printed it out and put it on a transparency and used by trusty projector. I have to wax the entire piece yet, so come back for finished photos, but I am super pleased with the results so far.
Waxed and ready for a new home.

Before..... I know, I know, very pretty the way it was, but there were more imperfections than you can see on the wood.
