Sweet Cottage Charm

Remember this table? Not very charming in it's original state. But it did have great bones.


But, baby look at her now!










I got my inspiration from some vintage rose ticking fabric I had. I have even added mosaic china to the sides of this sweet table. Look at the pretty glass knob on the drawer. It is now available on my website.
Playing in the Studio,

This is just so charming! I love the vintage ticking look.

I got some dishes last week to mosaic and my daughter took them. She wouldn't allow me to break them up.
