Glass Top Beauty

Could not resist this when I saw it at my local thrift store.  The price tag was $13.00 and it had some "joint problems" and suffered from a "dated stencil job".  Wood glue, two coats of Annie Sloan Antique White and clear wax gave her a new lease on life.
I added two graphics to the table top and bottom.  The one on the top came from The Graphics Fairy.  
The graphic on the bottom corner I found by just googling "French Postmark". 
It was in color so I did a little editing in my photo program and then printed it in black and white.  Both images were applied directly to the table using my graphics technique that uses office label sheets.  With the glass pieces on top, they really pop!
LOVE this scallop edge and the scallop glass!!
Here's the sad little table BEFORE:
And here she is all dressed up and ready for a new home!
