French Grain Sack Table

I have been experimenting with different looks and techniques as I have been getting ready for the vintage market.


I don’t like doing the same thing on every piece.

Each one is different and unique.

I just do what strikes my fancy.


I decided to do a French grain sack table.

This technique is nothing new I have seen it before but never tried it myself.


I  painted the table with  Annie Sloan French linen.

A stripe was added using TAPE  and  deco art paint in uniform blue.

No ruler was used to make sure the tape was straight  I  just eyeballed it

I did not want it to look perfect.


I added a French graphic from the graphic fairy using the citra solv technique.

Before waxing it I sprayed a clear sealer to prevent the graphic from smearing off.


Okay this is one of those pieces I hate to part with.

But I must this will be going to the vintage market.


I have to give a shout out to Bre at Rooms for rent for sharing my feature from Blogger Homes !

Thank you so much!

    This is the first time you’ve tried a transfer technique? Well it definitely looks professional to me. You did a fantastic job on that sweet table! I hope you take lots of pictures of your treasures after you set up your display, because they won’t last long!!

    What a cute table! I really like how that looks. It’s truly one of a kind. I bet someone will take that home with them after seeing it at the market.

    I can see why it will be so hard to part with it, but someone will love it just as much as you do. Love the graphic and the stripe!!

      I know so true! The good thing about resale is that I can keep a piece and let go of another until I find something else I want and so on and so on LOL!

      Thank you Liz! No I did not draw those lines free hand I used tape but did not use anything to see how straight I was.

    Anne, your little table turned out beautiful! You did an awesome job with transferring the graphic using the Cita Solv technique. I have never had much luck with technique. Hugs, Gail

    That is so sweet! I love the graphic you chose…. I even have a pillow on my couch with the same one. It would be so fun to go to your show… they never seem to have things like that around here.

    I have been painting some of my colored pieces white, but I don’t want to keep doing plain white. I love your idea and I might just do a take off on it on an antique record cabinet. Thanks for the inspiration.
