The world is your Canvas! Or a table. Either way ..... just create! The Tattooed Table :)


In my #1 Goal to be a DIY Grrrrrl inspiration to women, I constantly look for new ways to create art, or bring things to life. I saw this table at an estate auction. Not a single bid. So I scooped her up. She sat here for a bit until the inspiration hit. It shall be my canvas! I love doing henna and love seeing tattoos, but never thought to put one on myself this extravagant, but I love the design! I sat forever doodling until it looked the way I wanted then set off to work! You can see the full step by step either on my blog ( which gives away a secret ingredient) or on my facebook page - www.facebook.com/gypsybarn :) Come be inspired to create something fabulous for your home!
