today’s project


my sister-in-law gave me this table for our playroom awhile back. its great – round with a pine top and black legs, very sturdy. but it was a little boring on top. i’ve been wanting to try decoupaging the top for a bit, so i’ve been saving scraps of wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, invitation papers, and leftovers from other projects.


i/we (the girls kind of helped, too) started by laying out the biggest pieces of paper we had to try to cover the majority of the table.


then i tried to patch some of the holes left with these different sized dots i used at a shower.


next i layered on these flowers which were actually leftover from gracie’s first birthday invites! yes, i tend to save a bit too much, but this time it was useful!


last came alphabet cardstock i got on clearance, and abc stickers. also layered on are misc stars and dots i punched and cut out of more paper scraps.

believe it or not, i’m not done, just out of energy for now. i don’t really like how much i can see the shapes of the original large papers i layed down, so i want to layer more on. also, around the side edges i plan to just line it with maybe brown paper, then on the top edge i have scalloped some light blue paper that i’ll see if i can get it to lay right going around the circle.

the countdown is on for the babe, so i’m trying to get out all of my craftiness i have inside before i’ve got a boy attached to me and things slow down a bit.

    Okay, so I have to tell you my thought process as I saw the pictures on this post beginning with the first one:
    “Ugh, that’s kind of ugly. That’s weird, Lindsey usually has such impeccable taste. Strange.”
    “Oh, okay, that looks better.”
    “Oh, okay, that looks better.”
    “Oooh, that’s pretty cute.”
    “Okay, I LOVE it! I should have known better…”

    So, I totally thought you had gone off your rocker and there was some design black hole in SLO when I saw the first pic. I apologize. Of course it’s darling and will be ingrained into my memory for future use in Henry’s playroom someday! :)

    Love ya!
