I wanted a subtle pattern on the table that I painted and then thought of the idea that I used quite some time ago on a trunk. First I primed and painted the table a soft green and let it dry. Then I bought some lace with a large pattern and laid it over the top. I sprayed in a very soft gray. I also did the drawers. This matches very nicely with other things in my bedroom but, if you wanted to, you could make the contrast more extreme and it would also look good. I then put a coat of water based polyurethane on it.
Here is the table from a distance but of course it does not show the lace design this way. I like the lines of this table.
That is a great idea & looks wonderful.
What a wonderful idea, thanks for sharing. The lace most likely has a somewhat hard finish to it after being painted. Think what could be done with the lace now= form around an old vase, tie a ribbon around it and you have a victorian look. Make a fan for a background for a floral bouquet. Wow the possiblities are endless that is if you are done doing your great painting technique. Use it in scrapbooking or cover an old purse!
Very creative idea, just love it!
