make me pretty – two new pieces for the orange anniversary party!

May 7, 2014

This first re-do is actually the second time around for this little table. I painted it orange about a year ago but was never able to sell it. I guess maybe the orange was too bright. Maybe there just aren’t that many orange people out there. So I decided to a go a little safer this time around with a nice blue paint and an Ikat stencil.

I also found this towel rack at the thrift store that I thought would be perfect for the bathroom art shoe at Orange. I had to loose the cross stitch and replaced it with some of my favorite Amy Butler fabric. I painted it with chalk paint and distressed it. I am kind of in love with it. I almost kept it for myself!

make me pretty – alley table goes ikat

November 18, 2013

Another alley find in need of some tlc. I forgot to take a before picture but you can probably imagine it pretty easily – dark brown wood, a chip in the wood venire, a thick layer of dust. The perfect surface for me to try out my new ikat stencil!
