Glitzy Farmhouse Style Table Makeover

Hello Darlins' it is time for another DIY Furniture Girls Makeover Day. This is one of my favorite days of the month. Fifteen amazing ladies taking furniture that was headed for the trash pile and turn them around making them stars for a home. This months theme is Glitz & Glamour. My nine dollar Goodwill before table needed plenty of filthy dirt scrubbed off to prepare for this Glitz and Glamour makeover.

After a few shades of white milk & custom milk paint and gold metallic paint this glamour girl got her beauty sleep. When I woke up I sanded the gold extremely lightly with a sanding sponge, wiped off the dust.

Made in India hinged legs paired with antique oval mirror painted in shades of white Milk paint from Plaid.
The mirror was a wall mirror at some point but the shades of brown matched exactly to the hinged legs from India. I decided not to fix the screw holes to keep telling the story of two pieces finding their way into a pair.
Antique oval mirror with aged label, silver streaks in the mirror, white, gold, wax, roses, K doorknob, antique china tea plate from Nana

Layers of finish in Makeover, white milk paint, blended custom milk paint, metallic gold, with clear and silver frost wax

six hinge legs from india combined with mirror to create table. gilded with god and two wax finishes.
 The  details of this combined piece is what drew me to this piece. I love the time worn streaks in the mirror, the details in the legs, and the mirror still has the faded label on the back.

Spider Spun Candy Halloween Treat

  When Halloween Rolls around I always look forward to working with World Market, Laura Kelly Designs plus several other sponsor participants. This year I am very excited about my popcorn box contribution. Last year I made a treat for our sweet Cricket which you can see here.
  This year the spiders are helping me make the treat for our ghosts and goblins. I thought they would be happy to help spin some sugar to make cotton candy. 

Setting the stage for Spider Spun Candy in World Market Popcorn Box. Spider, Web Decoration, Pencils, Vangs, Fingers

I used several of the items purchased from the small payment paid to receive an envelope of supplies from our sponsors. Of course a project is never complete with out a few added items from the craft store. The cotton candy in this picture is "Spider Web Decorations."

Don't you love the  die cut pumpkin from Laura Kelly Designs? It has perforated lines to help round out the pumpkin. The paper and felt were also included in my stash envelope long with that darling spider at the top of the pumpkin. The curled paper stem, eyes and mouth of the Jack O'Lantern is all the same paper too.

White Pumpkin, Vampire Fangs, Udderly Smooth, Fall, Halloween, Cotton Candy

The Spider Spun Candy aka Cotton Candy is made with a glow in the dark kettle and water globe stuffed with glow in the dark plastic table cloth. Another water globe is also holding more spider spun candy which I added fun fangs to the opening. Did you notice the vampire I names him Fang? Wash your hands before you eat, applying Suddenly Smooth to take the bite out of dry hands.

Seven Layer Table Makeover

Today is DIY Furniture Girls Themed Makeover Day! Finding out the theme of the month is layers was awesome. Seven layer cakes came to mind because I love sweets. Funny! I have never eaten a seven layer cake. Chocolate is where you have my heart. You know a piece of dark chocolate each day is how I roll. Isn't it good for you?
