~What I have been working on~

~~FUN STUFF I have been working on to sell in the SHOP~~
~THE MOSAIC TABLE~ I took this darling little table and did mosaic on it with Vintage Rose and Pink Dishes along with Old beaded necklaces. I think it turned out pretty cool!!!!
Oh, I almost forgot, I couldn't forget added Vintage Buttons to it too!!!!
Notice the Necklaces I used on this piece????
~The 1930's Side Table~
Now, this little TREASURE was something I just couldn't refuse to buy. It has ALL of it's ORIGINAL PINK Chippy/Crackled paint still on it but the top needed a little something extra.
It's the MOST UNIQUE & ADORABLE SIDE TABLE I have ever run across!!!!

Love the tapered legs and the slatted sides. Reminds me of an old planter or baby crib. This is truly an Original Piece!!!!
I believe it's from the 1930's and so I added 1930's Vintage Gospel Sheet Music to the top!!!! Lots of these songs I remember singing as a child in the Baptist Church!!!!
I am still thinking I just might have to keep this one!!!! For awhile anyways!!!!
It's actually pretty big, and would hold lots of books and the more I look and talk about it, the more I fall in love with it!!!!~THE BUTTON CHAIR~
Done in a Creamy Off White Flat Paint that someone else painted and stenciled on. Since I didn't have the paint to match this chair, and I didn't want to repaint the WHOLE THING, I decided to cover up the stencils with VINTAGE White and Off White BUTTONS!!!!
I had A LOT of FUN with this piece, and the SEAT is MADE from an OLD BLUE and WHITE QUILT!!!!
~TONS and TONS OF OLD VINTAGE BUTTONS~
I just can't get enough buttons, I found a bunch more while going thru my rubbermaid bins, Which makes me look around my shop and trying to figure out what else can I adorn with OLD BUTTONS!!!!
Hope you are enjoying your Holiday Weekend, I sure am!!!!
Happy Happy JULY!!!!
Love and Hugs, Amy

Hi Amy
You've done wonderful transformations on the chair and table. I especially love all the buttons on the chair and the old quilt on the seat. It's delightful!
