FUNctional Card Table

When I saw this old card table at Goodwill for $20, I knew that it had major potential.  I loved the fact that the center of it was removable and that it was already framed.  This made me think that when it wasn’t being used as a card table, it could easily double as framed wall art.  I searched high and low for an inexpensive poster that was 27″ square; which turned out not to be the easiest task. Eventually I found what I was looking for at @AllPosters .com for about $10!  Full disclosure: I didn’t take as much time and care as I should have to Mod Podge the poster to the card table center and ended up with bubbles that I tried to fix to no avail; but I can live with it for now 🙂  Lastly @DecoArt white/blanc chalk paint & clear wax made for a splendid finish!  It is the perfect mate for my new chair from my favorite chalking buddy, Beth Treadwell @coloradostyled ❤
