Pressed Leaves Art on Antique Table

Now is the time for indoor garden projects.  This is an antique tea table that I refinished and added a wood insert with a wood transfer of my pressed leaves and tapastry pattern art.  I had never done a wood transfer before and I found several posts of instructions on Utube, lots of fun. The wood grain shows through the art and small parts of the transfer is rubbed off giving it an antiqued look. I sanded and stained the old table with a dark stain then painted it with the turquoise paint then sanded off areas to look worn from age.  Lots of fun.   I was inspired by my friends at who is also my neighbor and her best friend who have a business together upcycling old finds and has their work at the Faded Elegance Shop in Snohomish, Washington. Thanks for all your tips from your blog, I can't wait to try more.
