Metamorphosis Monday--it's been a while

This is mostly a 'so-far' metamorphosis...I want to finish it up but could use some suggestions.

Before - and please excuse the ratty looking cat scratch post there...apparently I need to reattach that rope---again! Oh yeah...that tub of fabric on top too...sigh. I need to work on my pictures!

Here's the after. tabletop

I am thinking about painting the trim gold...needs a few more coats of modge podge...and it looks a lot cuter in person! My cost for this was around 35 cents! The tray is one of a set from Freecycle. The cutouts are all from saved J.Peterman catalogs...I adore those catalogs...for the stories as much as for the items in it. See for yourself here:

Maybe outlining the stuff with a paint pen? (sigh) I just don't know...but they are so cute in person! Going to do the other two in the set over the soon as I decide what to use. Took forever to save the catalogs!

Linking up to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!

I also made this over the past week...but more a show-offy thing rather than a metamorphosis! :D

Another week of job hunting and dog bathing really is fun.




  1. Hi Susan-

  2. The book wreath is wonderful. Do you have a tutorial post for it? I would love to make one.
