Pottery Barn Inspired Library Table


I was inspired this Pottery Barn Numbers on Black Canvas for this project.


I got this old library table at a garage sale for $15. 
Its solid oak and super solid!  I sanded down the top and put on
a coat of dark walnut stain.


I made a transpearancy for my overhead.  I used various fonts to create it.


I then used my overhead projector to trace on the numbers and then painted black.


I painted the table with white chalk paint. 
I also sanded and distressed.  I just spray painted the
knob with oil rubbed bronze.


I painted on the numbers on the table top and then distressed. 
I then added a coat of dark stain to the top.



HAPPY DAY!!

  2. Girls it's perfect. I love anything with numbers on it, distressed and sanded, makes me want to lay all over it! It would be perfect in a little office or study, well done.

  59. I tend not to leave many comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here "Pottery Barn Inspired Library Table".
    And I actually do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of these remarks appear like coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at additional sites, I'd like to keep up with anything
    fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of all of all your shared sites like your
    Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
