Happy Saturday!!! Can you guess what this is?
I was painting a plain pine table and the reflection of the lace curtain shone on the table surface. My heart started racing with excitement because an idea started forming in my head.
Just an idea and no plan for executing it...that normally gets my heart racing!
I popped into the fabric shop on my way to work and bought a scrap of lace fabric.
The day dragged on...all I wanted to do was to get home and try this crazy idea of mine! When I got home from work that day, I had ants in my pants, because early evening is family time, so little pine table had to wait a while!!!
Once the house was quiet I jumped into action still hoping that I was onto something here!
I think by now you've guessed it...yes?! I did a lace stencil over the top of the table....
The background color is a mix of blue and grey paint. I secured the scrap of lace over the top, took the table out into the yard and spray painted all over the lace. When the paint was dry I carefully removed the lace fabric and Wow! I fell in love...LOL
Then I thought, won't she look adorable with dipped legs? I used painters tape to close off the parts that I wanted to stay the original color and out to the yard she went again. This time to spray paint the exposed bits!
Such a fun piece!
Have you had any crazy ideas lately?
