I am afraid there are not too many brain cells firing right now. I am getting ready for a show. And while I am excited, I also bust it trying to get done EVERYTHING I planned and dreamed I would create.
It never happens, but I do try.
I decided I didn't have enough big pieces so I hobbled this bar/serving table together 2 days ago.
I started with an enamel top from a disabled hoosier base. I painted it with chalk paint because it was badly scratched.
My neighbor said, " I could never imagine this or think up something like this to make." I told him I had no idea what I was making when I started, that I can't think it up or all the way through before I start--I just put pieces together until I end up with something.
I used a drawer for a base and some nice 4x4 legs (from the aforementioned neighbor). I decided since this ended a little taller than I planned, there was room for shelf, so I threw that in there.
I added a coat hook and bottle opener
and a level for a towel bar.
Sorry about the background--I was the only one home and this piece was too heavy to move very far for photos. I am pretty sure the new neighbors moving in across the street think the lady bringing wine and cheese and crackers to the photograph in the front yard is crazy.
