Turquoise and Trunks

$5
3 Hours
Easy

it all started with a globe clock! I created it, then hung it up and looked at it thinking hmmm. Well that's not a very pretty photo op. I need more colour!!!!! I pulled this colour from the globe and went to work mixing a batch of blues and turquoise up. Then set off to my awesome junk piles to look for things to create to help make a prettier photo. It sort of took off on this spiral of colour and items. First the suitcase table, then the little accent table, then the mirror, then ... too much colour! Let's throw in a chair - maybe I'll paint it white...... and voila - all creations done and shot in one day. Love them to bits!

Almost fooled me! I can't tell what almost fooled me about this table more - the second layer of bubbling sticky paper, or the poorly trimmed edges. It was a sight for sore eyes indeed, but nothing I would even think of passing on - look at those legs! Perfect for a future piece - like this!

A close up of the distressing I chose to use. Very minimal.
