soooooooooooo--- here are the pictures -- it is absolutely UNFINISHED, and i'm sure i'll be tweaking and changing it over time, but i couldnt resist :) enjoy!
the people who lived here before us used this as a bedroom
woohoo! who doesnt love a leopard print wall?!?
i found this dining room table at a thrift store for $23
so, i painted her up a beautiful bright pink
and did a fabric collage on top!
i added some pom-pom trim to the underneath,
and maybe a few rhinestones on the legs
(really, is there such a thing
as "too much" for a craft room?
i think not!)
I used lots and lots of fabric to collage the top, then after numerous coats of glue, poured a lacquer over it to make it shiny and hard! (and, there is glitter sprinkled into the lacquer-woohoo)
how fun is that?!?
i used a product that you mix two parts together and it forms the ultra-durable finish,
you can find this at Hobby Lobby
it took 3 coats of this lacquer, and probably needs 1-2 more to be as thick and smooth as i want it! its quite the ordeal, but it looks so different than anything else i've ever seen!
i painted this little nightstand to hold my gift wrap accessories,
i plan to change the knobs soon!
and, my darling little collection of salt and pepper shakers
which will hold glitter and beads!
i love it, i love having a place to go and create!
happy "royal wedding" friday!
i'm watching it right now and loving every moment,
what a beautiful bride Kate makes!!!
