For a little fall fun!
One of the things I love most about fall are the leaves. I decided to use leaves as my inspiration for a DIY. (I’ve done this before, as some of you might know.)
I found a little side table with a plain pine top at a yard sale for a few dollars. I found some maple leaf clip art on line, I taped it on top of the table, and used a ballpoint pen to trace the outline, which showed up in the pine.
(from Google images)
I used MMS Tricycle paint to paint the leaf and the stripes, which I taped off.
I used MMS Grain Sack for the white, then waxed the entire thing.
The base had a very northwoodsy vibe to it, and I like the way it looks with the top.
(The takeaway from this is to trace with a pen on soft wood and you can color it in!)
I would love for you to visit each of the other blogs who are participating with me
