You may remember this quick fix with my dingy ottoman and our queen duvet cover.
And how I thought when summer was over I would carefully remove the staples and reclaim the bedding…
So now what?
I found some muslin. But it was not thick enough to hide the b&w pattern underneath, so I lay some scraps of duck cloth (thin canvas) that I had down first.
I took the muslin, laid it on the table and got out my fancy-shmancy painting tools. I used my gold craft paint. Be sure to cover the potato well, otherwise your design may need filling in here and there, which is really no biggie either.
Perfectionists, look away for a second. Those of you still looking, you can see that some of my crosses are not as straight as the others. If this would bother you, you can tape off lines to follow with painter’s tape. I cared not.
I finished it off and found that leftover rope from my The long and winding ROPE post.
Hot glue gunned it all around and once more around the legs. There’s nothing like a few good burns from your glue gun to remind you that you’re alive. And that you willingly put yourself in harm’s way. Geez.
I updated this vase with a little more bling and styled the tray. Voila!
And why do I have this sudden craving for French fries?
