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!
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: http://www.jpeterman.com/
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 summer...as 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
Here it is on the wall over my hubby's reading chair!
Another week of job hunting and dog bathing ahead...it really is fun.
