Something different this week. I wanted a new coffee table and I love that industrial look - but they are expensive. Well I happened to have this rustic old cabinet just lying around waiting to be used again. Made my own chalk paint from sample paint I had lying around. The only big expense was the oversized industrial wheels ($100 on ebay). They are missing a little xtra decorative hardware but other than that they are done. I used dark paste wax as a finish on the sides and on the red panels and natural paste was on the rest. Love the pop of color it gives to my living room full of brown furniture.
The 3 birds are made from gourds I had dried a couple of years ago. Used old hardware. grunge paper, swarovski crystals, driftwood and a lot of "stuff" to make the nests. Not sure if I will sell them or keep them but I will make more anyway. So much fun to do!
Linking to Paint Party Friday. Go and visit and be inspired by all the wonderful art. And if you create things - painting, sculpture, sketches go and join in the fun! Have a blessed and creative weekend. Thanks so much for visiting.
