From Curb to Français (French Graphic Table)

Oh my I had fun with this little baby. She was at the curb when Mr. Frugalista set eyes on her and quickly rescued this Damsel in Distress. I decided Cinderella deserved adorning a glass slipper and being the Queen of the French Ball!

Down to the shop she went and off for a visit to +The Graphics Fairy LLC in search of a French graphic befitting a Queen. She's going to reside in our Guest Bedroom so I found the perfect graphic for a Boudoir.

Cinderella started off looking like this...



After a good bath in Natura Safe Sand Liquid Deglosser and a slather of Shellac, she was ready to get dressed in her finest.

Her legs and apron were adorned in Versailles, of course! Her ribbon and top were painted in Old White and her brim with Graphite. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE working with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®!

Then came time for some Français goodness! I used my favorite image transfer technique which is placing carbon paper behind the image and tracing over the graphic with a pen. Using some watered down Graphite chalk paint and a few fine artist brushes, I hand painted over the imprint. This took some time and a lot of patience but Cinderella was worth the royal treatment!

Now for the Glass Slipper - a perfect fit!

Here she is, dressed and ready for the Ball!

Now all she needs is Prince Charming...wait a minute...I guess Mr. Frugalista was her Prince Charming!
