In anycase, I did get enough downloaded to show them off here...Its a coffeetable/sidetable set and altho Ive been making a conscienous effort in taking better photo's...coffee tables are HARD, plus the best light in my house is up 3 flights of stairs. I know Ive been bootcamping it for 6 months...however, its awkward angles that strand me with this one.
Solid wood, 100% sturdy and fancy legs. This is the kinda stuff that I dream about.
The sidetable I whipped up in a couple days but honestly, I struggled with what to do for the coffee table. My personal taste doesnt enjoy matching things...More flea market chic the better for me but as I was venting to the Mister..he reminded me that in this situation, Im not really the norm and that most people like things to match and go-together...ok. You're probably right. Done.
I did an abstract painting on the top of both pieces in brown, cream and a honey yellow. Then I created a "frame" around the piece by painting on swirly frame-ish details..a lil distressing, a lil glaze and Viola!
I LOVE the sidetable..
K...its now 12:26pm, and since Blogger decided to go jerk on me too today, Im calling it past lunch AND friends-off with this computer today. Im sure it's weather related since everything thats been breaking down or grumpy (including people) has been weather related. Its minus-hell freezing over again today and I heard on the radio that we're on day 125 of straight snow on the ground and cold..even for the Canadian Prairies its ridiculous...Off to
Monday Parties Im linking up to!
