Show 'n Tell Monday........better late than never!

Well, here it is Tuesday evening and I'm just now getting my Show and Tell Monday post added! I've been working on furniture lately.....this piece is a round occasional table with a bamboo insert in the bottom. it had a slick finish on it and since I am l-a-z-y, I started out by spray painting the table with off-white paint, then followed up with my favorite "Antique White" satin interior paint. I have one coat on in the picture and will add one or two more coats until it looks just like I want it to.

I'm going to try my hand at mosaic on this table top.....I ordered a beautiful pansy focal for the center and will use the pretty gold fleur-de-lis, periwinkle and light green tiles to fill in the rest of the table top. Sure hope I can do this!

That is going to be awfully pretty. I love pansies, so I'm partial to it already. Good luck, you can do it!

This is going to be beautiful! What a lovely pattern. Pansies were my Grandmothers favortie flower. She loved them because as she said, "They always have a smile on their little faces" She was so cute!

Can't wait to see your finished design. I'm sure it'll be beautiful.
