Todays Coffee Roundup - And HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Good Morning! And Happy New Year!
I love the holidays, easy peasy coffee time spent browsing the internet. I was asked this morning for photos of my table for an application I'm making to a local cool craft fair ...and of course I had those ready (ahem cough).
So, our mission today - create a craft table display!
First I ran to the local charity shops - where I lucked into a most excellent Bombay Company find, a large tea chest. New hinges, a good polish and that's staging area #1.
A very beaten up vintage box makes for display area #2.
Next - a coupon search for Micheals and voila! Two eiffel tower displays at 70% off (we are thrifty!)
Wanting something natural and not so square to balance it I scoured the area while walking the dogs - and a beautiful twisted tree branch adds a little au natural to the table.
Charity store find #3 - cork mats.
And lastly I co-opted our tray from the living room table.
Finally - a run to the hardware store for eye pins to screw into the wood and cork so as to hold things steady.
What do ya' think?
I am liking image #1 better - the addition of the round cork mat adds a little balance.
Oh and hey, check out that beautiful vintage silver mirror! Wasn't intended to buy that but its so elegant and beautiful!
Total cost: A smidge over $38 - not too bad!
Pictures are on their way now with my application - hopefully we get in and get to meet some folks in the spring!
Hope your New Years brings you love, hope and happiness. Spread a little cheer today!
