I had originally planned on using the table in my studio, but after putting it together, I decided to make it my dining room table!

And I love it!

To answer some questions:

  • Just curious what paints you used on the table and did you prime it. I used regular acrylic paints and I didn't prime it in any traditional sense.  The first layer was indoor wall paint, which I reviewed here.
  • Did you have a plan before hand of colors, flowers, etc? Not really.  I knew that I wanted to do flowers and I decided that I needed to push myself to try creating some flowers outside of the style that I usually do.  So that was really the only thing in my head when I started working.
  • Wow! I want it as a phone case! So many people said this, that I decided to go ahead and make it a phone cover and a laptop skin and a few other things!

  • The smaller black & white dashes/lines you did... does that get tedious to you? Or do you love doing that just as much as the rest? I don't find it tedious.  But that's why that kind of small repetitive motif is a part of my personal style.  I encourage you to only make marks that are fun for you to make.  If you don't enjoy that kind of work, don't do it!  Find your own style.  :)
  • How did you ever get it home? I had help.  A friend of mine did most of the heavy lifting.  That, combined with a small SUV, and home the table went! 

Thanks for stopping by!
