Continuing on about my Florida cottage study.....
I had mentioned that I wanted to expand the look and feel of the wall over the chair, to reflect the fabulous changes I made to the wall over the loveseat....
I want more variety, not all the same frames.....
I found this tray on ebay, and won the auction!!!!!
When it arrives, later this week, I'll see if it works. I plan on hanging it on the wall along with some other stuff.
STAY TUNED !!!!!!!
I didn't tell you about this tray until I had won it, 'cuz I didn't want any of you snakes out there bidding against ME!!!!
In the corner of the room is a little split reed table that I got with an unfinished unstained unappealing wooden top....
So, I put on my thinking cap....
(it's a very good look for me)
and I thought about painting it a green color.
Not interesting enough.....
thought some more.....
Now, I don't have any children.
(never wanted em, don't know why, just didn't.)
(Now, don't go leaving lots of comments about what I've missed out on in my life.....)
(I have 5 nieces and 5 nephews)
(even those are too much for me)
(great, now you're going to get me into trouble with my family!)
(OK, Betsy, take a deep breathe.... Now, where was I? Oh, yeah, decoupage....)
I had never decoupaged before.
Wait! That's not true... I did once before... just not lots of pieces... just one big print... not that it matters... now I'm just rambling on... I can't seem to stop.
So I went to Micheal's and bought a jar of Modge Podge.
My friend and bidness partner, Kris, had to tell me about it, 'cause she has kids.
All kidless people should be friends with kidfull people, so that they can learn about Modge Podge.
I had a bunch of vintage souvenir Florida postcards from old postcard sets. You know, the ones that come in folders. They are really thin, so work well for decoupage.
I started laying them out on the table.....
I glued them down with the Modge Podge as I set them in place, working the bubbles out as I went.
I really liked the way it came out, but I sort of wish I had painted the top green first, but
IT'S TOO LATE NOW!!!!!
So now, here it is in it's home.
Of course, after I spent all that time embellishing the top.....
What do I do, but cover it up with #$%!!!
Till, next time
("cuz there's more to come about this room!)
