My "New" Centerpiece


As I pulled into the the little trailer park in our little town, I noticed the huge dumpster and then men dismantling the trailer next to the lawn I mow.  They were tossing anything and everything into the dumpster.  Of course I ran over to take a look!  This was one of the things I pulled out of the heap!  Unfortunately, they had totally buried a nice desk and couldn't uncover it for me. :(  Along with who-knows-what other treasures!!).


My friend, who is obviously much tougher than I, got the large screws that were dangerously poking out of each end removed for me and I painted the whole thing with white chalk paint.  Then with my new found love of transferring images using freezer paper, I attempted to transfer an image from the Graphic's Fairy.  However, it smudged, and I had to wipe it off and try again.  I've decided that trying to transfer a graphic onto a painted surface is much more difficult than on dry wood!!


It's actually decorated for Christmas right now, but I haven't had a chance to take any photos, so you get to see it with the beautiful fall flowers that my hubby brought home for me the other day.  That happens once every two years, so even though they're almost completely dead, I still have them in a vase!! :)

  1. I love how it turned out. I love how you can paint anything white and add a graphic and it always turns out fabulous, don't you think?
