I have about learned to grab the camera and get a "before" shot
before starting a project, but unfortunately I still forget to
keep snapping all the way through. Good thing you have a
good imagination. It will help you later on in this post.
This little table was on its way out. It had already made it to the trash
bin, but not all the way to the curb. The poor little thing was so wobbly
it could hardly stand on it lovely turned legs.
The top was disconnected from the leg and the garish nail holes from a poorly attempted repair were filled with wood putty and sanded.
Now is where you imagine the table top painted white.
Got that? That will help you recognize it later on.
The edges of a pressed wood letter from
Hobby Lobby have been painted pale pink.
The "B" is about to be covered with this gingham paper.
I brushed the letter with Mod Podge then smoothed the paper
over the letter.
After allowing it plenty of time to dry, I used a sharp blade
to trim the paper from the back side of the letter.
The edges will be rough. I simply sanded off the paper remnants
with 220 grit sandpaper.
I attached the "B" to the now-white
table top plaque
with hot glue.
By now, your keen sense of deductive reasoning has
probably clued you in on what is happening here.
The "is for" is free-handed in pink marker.
Miss B's name is written with stick on letters.
This sweet name plaque is hanging over Miss B's crib
waiting for her arrival, at which time I will
be a liberty to announce what the "B" stands for.
In the meantime, there are a couple more nursery projects
to share in future posts. I had better get to posting, because
we are down to just a couple of weeks....or less!
There will be a full nursery tour at Miss B's mama's blog
that I will link to in a future post.
