makeover using floral contact

hi to you all!
it's been a crazy week here! i feel like i haven't blogged for an age!
now that we are well and truly into the cooler months,
my days are starting to fill up with supply teaching. so, not as much time for painting unfortunately.
however, i did manage to get a few little projects done as well as these lovely pieces.
they now 'kind of' match thanks to this gorgeous blue floral contact.
i painted them both first then glued on some of the contact. i was lucky enough to find it in an op shop. i don't think they make pretty rolls like this anymore.
i found another glass cloche too. this one has a marble base.
i decided to keep the original handles for each.
tulips in my IKEA jug= happy me

what a cute pair. would be perfect as bedside tables don't you think?
or split up and used anywhere really.
cupboard before....
table before....
i have a dining table arriving this morning that i will be painting up for
a friend/client! very excited to be venturing a little more into painting on consignment.
