Thank you so much for coming to my little bit of the blogosphere. I'm a married mom of 4 adults and Oma to one precious baby boy. I love taking old things and fixing them up or tearing them down to create something totally unique. Sit back, relax, grab a cup of your favorite drink and enjoy the ride we call life :)
When my kids were little I used to make them each costumes and we had a great time (out in the country) visiting with all the neighbours. There were of course the places my kids loved going, and the places they were secretly scared of going. Some people really put on a show! :)
Of course now my kids are grown with homes of their own...so no more costumes to create.
Sooooo in the mood for something with a bit of halloween colour to it, I decided to tackle this little console table.
It came to me looking rather sad and neglected.
No knobs and no shelf inside. Yes I know there is a shelf there, but my wonderful hubby did that for me while I was at a meeting. Gotta love that man :)
I love the extra effort that was taken to create a few extra curves for people like me who love curves of pretty much any kind.
All in all it was in pretty good shape. No real repairs needed.
So I got to work. I thought of doing it a shade of green...so I started with painting the inside with an apple green.
But when I started to lay the paint on the top...the darker green just wasn't grabbing me.
So I looked around and saw this can of purple I had bought, but never felt it was right for anything....till today!
I quickly painted it before I changed my mind! Every feel that way? Do something quick?
I felt it needed more, so out came the black glaze and I worked with it till I felt it was right.
I left the inside alone. I'm loving the two colours together.
I added the glass knobs and set it up for you to see.
Sigh...another project done and ready to find a new home :)
