Tilt Top Table Makeover

 It's amazing how a little paint can completely transform a piece of furniture. And, this tilt top table is no exception.

The base of the table was in good shape, however, the top not so much! It definitely needed some love.

I painted the table with 2 coats of the color, Spanish Moss, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.

I've had this Re*design With Prima transfer for quite sometime waiting for the perfect project to use it on, and this was it.

The transfer came in 4 sections so I carefully placed them & taped them down, then rubbed them on.
I went over the entire table with Dixie Belle's clear wax. Adding clear wax first makes it easier to control the darker wax colors.
Then I added black wax to the detailed areas, then wiped it back with a rag.

What a difference! From drab & dated to darling!

I made sure that when the table was tilted, that the design would be in the proper direction.

When tilted, the table is like a work of art.

Bottle Makeover with WoodUBend

 I love old bottles! I have a collection of them in my kitchen window. And, I find it hard to throw away new ones. They may not be beautiful or unique like my vintage ones, but they can be! So, I like to give them a makeover.

When I finished this bottle of vinegar, I ran it through the dishwasher then painted it with one coat of the color Vintage Duck Egg from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.

Once the paint was dry, I added a piece of WoodUBend trim around the top of the bottle, & a flower to the center using E6000 glue. WoodUBend is flexible once you apply heat to it, so it can be wrapped around any shape. 
I painted over the bottle and the WoodUBend with another coat of Vintage Duck Egg.
Once the paint was dry, I covered the WoodUBend with Dixie Belle glaze in the color, Van Dyke Brown.
I put the glaze on heavy, then wiped it back with a damp rag.
When the glaze was dry, I rubbed on Dixie Belle Gilding Wax in the color Hammered Copper.

This bottle may not be old like the ones in my collection, but I think it's just as beautiful!
