Three Nesting Tables and an Octopus

19K
Meet Oscar the Octopus!
This set of nesting tables was screaming for something wonderful, colorful and opposite of the condition I found it in. I was challenged this month by The Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest to create something with color. "Come On, Let Your Colors Burst!" was the theme for July, winner will receive a prize from this month's sponsor I have to admit Katie Perry is one of my favorite inspirational singers... I know... I know, but seriously. Listen to her Firework song and tell me you can't scream... er... sing at the top of your lungs that verse... a
"Come On, Let Your Colors Burst!"
As soon as I saw the theme I began singing as I typed my name into the entry slot... it is my artistic theme song!
So why an octopus... I honestly don't know. I have always admired the colors of the underwater world but I remember seeing a beautiful red/orange/yellow octopus at an aquarium once and the legs of these nesting tables just screamed make me something unique! I will admit it's a bit out there, not my normal style but I couldn't help myself.

The octopus wraps over the edges of the tables allowing the images to flow from one to the other and still have a black boarder to help the colors pop.

      @Sylvia Awe! Thank you for sharing that with me. I pull inspiration off of others too when I am low. It makes my heart happy to know I can return the motivation.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
