My saga began with this awesome two-tiered table I scammed off my mom. I loved the shape and size of it.
After some Behr Black Suede paint it looked like this…(click here if you want a play by play of the reupholstery project on those wingback chairs).
Then I tried to decorate it and it looked AWFUL!
So I have been going back and forth regarding how to accessorize it. One level stresses me out..two levels make me cry.
So I reworked it and it came out looking like this…
I was still struggling with the bottom tier. A bunch of you suggested maybe a design on the bottom tier might help alleviate the need for decorations.
I was scared of trying a stencil. So I decided to try using vinyl stickers. I used a design from my Silhouette machine and then had it cut out the stickers. I pulled off the excess vinyl and all that is left is the damask design.After that I used the transfer paper to remove the vinyl damask cut outs. Then I place the vinyl where I want it and then burnish it down and then slowly pull back the transfer paper. I can remove them anytime I want, they are easy to apply, and they add a little flair.
I think just some pretty silvered mirror coasters on the lower level for functionality would do it. I am still totally and utterly in love with my “new” chairs.
