nest table





 i picked up this table for £4 while i was out thrift hunting yesterday




 i used farrow and ball egg shell paint and gave it a couple of coats
 next i used this image and printed on to freezer paper, i printed it as a mirror image

 then i put it on top of the table and rubbed the back with a creadit card to transferd it to the top of the table.
 then i used a pen to trace over the top of it, then i waxed over the top of it to keep the image where it is
