My daughter and I worked on it together. We drew flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, hearts--you know, all the fun girly stuff on it. Then we painted it with all the fun girly colors. :) Here she is working on one of the flowers:
And here is the final table. We have put many, many layers of varnish on it and it's going to be our new patio table. Won't this be fun to eat outside on? I can't wait!
Here it is outside on the patio ready for a party!
I entered this on A Soft Spot to Land for DIY Day!
So here's what I did. My daughter and I spent a fun afternoon cutting cardboard pieces to fit in the box, wrapping them with craft paper and then we spooled the ribbon around them. (My daughter's favorite job was seperating the ribbon into color piles--the apple did not fall far from the tree!)
Now I can see everything I have all at the same time. And doesn't it look pretty?

I'm a little late posting this as Nibblefest started on Sunday, but here is my entry for July. The theme this month is Angels and Demons. So I just had to do a sweet little angel. She is available on e-bay now! (Nibblefest ends on the 27th.)

What can I say about Polka Dots besides I LOVE THEM!!
Here is my entry for Inspire Me Thursday for this week. The theme is Polka Dots. This is Meredith. And not only did I put polka dots in the background of this piece, I added more to the sides. Did I mention, I love polka dots?!?

I was also so excited to see this Modigliani. I've always been a fan of his and I've always loved this lady in particular!! When I saw this painting from across the room it was like seeing an old friend.
Okay, just one more. This one is a little study by Seurat. It's quite small, probably one of the smallest in the exhibit. But it's just so lovely!
