I wish I could just look at a piece of furniture and know exactly what I should do (or not do) to it, but it doesn't seem to work that way. In my hands this table has gone from black (way too serious) to white (way too much distressing) to its current and final blue color! I mixed two blues, MS Rainwater and MS Duck Egg, then followed up with light glazing in the details and on the edges. Then I decoupaged over the top with old book pages. I'm happy to say it is finished!
I painted the French street sign and put together the little bottle/vase. It has the prettiest old earring that I found at the thrift store (yes, just one) and clipped to the antique lace.
