Alright I'm slighly Im in "time out". Sometimes computers are terribly crappy things and I hate them...but after I rant and rave and yell  and stomp away dropping words that cost me big time in Bunny's swear jar, I always run back apologising to the thing begging for forgivness as I know..sadly, I can't live without it. Last night I spent hours trying to design a button for my site...(Mom, its that small box on the right there that is the same design as my title but smaller..*wink*) and I could not get the size to work...and it still isnt right, but I needed to walk away and give me and the laptop a break from each other. Then today, JUST when Im all forgiving and photo program keeps shutting down on me and my Facebook page (have you "liked" me yet?) wont follow thru with a link back to my blog ..Ugg. Its not noon here yet, or Id pour me some wine..
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' 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 drink paint!
