On top of that...I have all this furniture and the salvaged pieces I have been working on. Remember this piece?
One leg was missing and one was broken beyond repair. I took all the legs and this curvy bottom and was left with the table top which was split. I glued it back together with wood glue and clamped it. Sorry I don't have picture of the whole process.
I then sanded it down and painted it white. Next I added some old encyclopedia pages to it. Each has the word bird on the page. I used modge podge and then on top and old book page with number of different birds. I then decided it needed more so I took out my letter stencils and my gold paint pen and wrote Birds. I had to improvise the letters because my stencil had only capital letters. One more little touch. I had necklace with the outline of cool bird so I used the gold paint pen and traced it.
The table had such a nice curvey top. I think it will make a great piece of wall art but I am anxious to hear what YOU think.
These other two pieces are made from pallet wood which I sanded down. One was painted with some watered down white paint. White washed. I then added these old pages out of a book with architectural components on them. It needs something else but I can't quite put my finger on it. I thought about writing the word beauty. Art is too obvious and architectural is too long. What do you think?
Next, again pallet wood and then I added this great damask designed stencil with white paint.
I got it off center so I decided to write the word love vertically and then added the gold heart.
Sorry I could not figure out how to turn this.
I hope you loved it or at least inspired you! Watch there will be many upcoming projects.
