I brought home this table just a few days ago..the fact Im finshed it already is bizarre but equally awesome
The Before: Not horrible...but stencil-y designs are not at all my thing...altho I do appreciate their existance. If they were my thing, well then, this table would have been the best find ever just as is! But for me..it needed paint.
Light teal all-over..aka: Seafoam green..highlighted with chocolate brown, cream and darker teal
aka: darker seafoam green
For some reason, I have no idea why, but a compass *needed* be be painted on top...Definitly *needed*..I didnt consider anything else actually.. ..It was like someone beside me chomping gum to the repitious beat of "compass" "compass"..K, it wasnt actually THAT ridiculous.... I hadnt handpainted anything on a piece of furniture sitting in front of the TV in a while, so it was pretty back to basic sweet for me and Ive already done birds, tree branches, foliage, feathers, letters, numbers and flowers.....The end.
and of course I didnt have north pointing straight up on the table ..uhhhhh....that definitly isnt my thing..even more so than stencils. Odd things are my favorite things.
I take crappy pictures. Its a talent I absolutly dont have. I'm horrible and rely on pure luck to get a good-enough shot to show my pieces...plus, my house has no natural light...its kinda cave-like...so, I always take my pictures outside..However, its going to get freak'n freezing and snow-y and crappy soon so I better at least try to take good-enough-for-now-till-Spring pictures....
Here it is: Above: a corner of my living room with my compass table.
