Postcard table and a new magazine...

Hey ya'll! I know it's been awhile...but life has unexpectedly taken a front seat. I promise it will not be so long in between posts again! So, after some computer problems (which I hope to have resolved!), and other bumps in the road...all is well and I'm back!

I have been really busy since my last post, and I have lots to show you in the next couple of weeks! I've got lots going on & I'm really excited in the direction things are beginning to go! I hope you will stay with me as I embark on this new journey!  I have realized recently, just how large all this antiquing, re-purposing, re-cycling, junking, saving the planet one old desk or dresser from the landfill at a time,blogging, whatever it is that you do, that connects us all. It can be overwhelming at times, however if you take baby steps, it can be exhilarating! 

First things first...I would like to take this opportunity for anyone that has not yet heard of this up & coming awesome new magazine heading to newstands everywhere soon! FOLK Magazine looks like it was made just for me! And you, and you! This magazine is truly going places...and I want to be there every step of the way! If you haven't already...go check them out...FOLK Magazine and check them out on Facebook!
Next, I just finished a copycat project from Red Hen Home and you can find it here.  I've had this old coffee table for years, and even used it for awhile...but it was never quite what I wanted...until I came across Korrie's postcard table. Here's what I started with:

I know this isn't the greatest picture, I forgot to get a good before shot, so here it is once I started sanding

Next, I painted it in Antique white, I know...I'm slow to get on the ASCP bandwagon...but it is in the works!

Then I grabbed the image from The Graphics Fairy, and used my handy dandy projector that I learned about from Miss Mustard Seed...and voila':

Sorry for the pictures folks, a new camera is definitely on my wish list! Glad Christmas is getting closer!! ;) I am very pleased at how this table turned out...so thanks to all of those I listed above for the inspiration! Hopefully, I will win a FOLKS Magazine first edition and put it on my new postcard table! As I said before, I have more things in the works! Please stay tuned!
