Blue Table and How to Get Rid of Stubborn Seams in Fabric

If you've ever bought fabric from a craft store you can relate to my story. It always has stubborn seams in it from the folds and they are a pain in the butt to get out. For my latest project I used a fool proof method to say good bye to those seams in no time.
First a little about the table. I used Valspar's Deep Pacific and mixed it with water and Plaster of Paris to turn it into chalk paint.
Now to remove the seams in your fabric follow these steps:

1 :: Turn on your iron and lay your fabric down on your ironing board

2 :: Get a small towel wet (wring it out so it’s not dripping)

3 :: Lay your wet towel down over top of your fabric

4 :: Put the iron down over the towel where the seams are on the fabric

5 :: Let the iron sit in each spot for about 20 seconds

6 :: Lift up your towel and scream for joy because your seams are gone!
Of course your fabric gets wet and you have to let it dry before using, but this method hasn't failed me yet!
I attached the fabric using a staple gun and sealed the table with Annie Sloan's Clear wax and added some new hardware.

No more seams and the perfect touch to make the drawer pop!

    Did you "seal" fabric with AS clear wax also?
