Repurposed 1970s Occasional Table Shabby Chic Style with Patisserie Stencils

I got an old fashioned 70's type brown occasional table ugh! Since I was a kid in the 70s I am not so keen on reliving the furniture style of the times with shag carpet and avocado green appliances no thank you! When I see a nice piece like this one I hear it in my mind saying SAVE ME!

Here is the before image, pretty basic right? I picked this up for a few bucks at my local thrift shop. I love the curved top and the legs were very sturdy. I decided to paint it shabby chic white, distress it and add some French transfers.

Well after I added the white homemade chalk paint and sanded it I was happy with the outcome. What do you think?

I love the deco art French stencils, though I have to admit I seem to always lift the stencil and get some paint underneath. No problem though I just sand it a little bit and it finished up quite nicely.

I have a few more items I am working on like this ugly dresser

Well that's all that is happening in my neck of the woods, how is your creative projects coming along?

My Garden Delights

I love plants and gardening but it just seems that I can't get the darn plants to grow how I want them. I plant something and it grows over onto my other plants or they just don't grow at all and don't even get me started on our lawn er crabgrass!
This year I got some Succulents from a lady who sells small containers of about 4 or 5 plants for $2. They actually have grown quite a bit and I have propagated them for even more plants. Now that's a great payoff in my opinion! Here are some photos from my garden this year. So, what do you think? I planned it out a little better this year as far as spacing but the crabgrass is still going strong!
