what the table looks like now...



okay, so here is the table!!! i like how it turned out, the outside is the same storm gray by krylon and the inside is also krylon spray paint in bahama sea (it was on sale!). i primed with gray primer and then went to town....

the curtain is actually part of a sheet that i got while thrifting...i like all the colors in it, especially for spring. it's on a tension rod, so it is easily changed when i get tired of it:) and the best part is, that was a "no-sew" project...i just used the larger hem the sheet already had as the channel and left the edges raw because it's a knit and knits don't ravel:)

we still need to get a shelving unit to put inside it...ikea has one i was eyeing and then there's regular rubbermaid drawers at wally-mart or target...just need to make up my mind:)

the mirror we already had...the subway art is a printable from eighteen 25 i am glad i tried out the 8x10 size, they are sized for 8x10 or 11x14, but to have one printed in the larger size is more than i wanted to pay for a picture:) i just bought a frame at goodwill for $1.99. i originally wanted to make this into an easter egg, but decided it was too big, and lucky for me, one time i was at goodwill, i found some oval hoops for $1 each:) the fabric and ribbons aren't sewn together because i love that Michael Miller ta dot too much to commit to using it permanently in the hoop. i pinned some edges down in the back to help them not stick out....when easter is over, i'll take them out:) sort of a "first draft" for how to organize things on to of the table...it's so deep it poses some interesting issues, i like it for now though!!!!

Hi Jen,

I like it! You could put a cute shelf on top.
