My Creative Space..

Like any good crafty soul, I find myself inspired the most when I have a giant to do list.  So of course, on my way to the supermarket yesterday I stopped into my favourite thrift shop and found the sweetest pair of side table, just waiting for a little makeover, inspired by Elsie's recent DIY project.

So I took a little break from reading, writing, marking, cooking and packing to have a bit of fun with some spray paint and a few doilies.

I wanted a large subtle pattern in fun colour, so I used three large doiles and some yellow gloss spray paint.  Thrifty purchases and spray paint always go so well together!  

I love that each pattern is slightly different and at a glance they look like lovely big flowers.  When you look closer all the little details appear.  Together these tables will make a lovely little telephone stand and will add the perfect pop of colour to our new living room.

Check out all the other lovely creative spaces this week over here.

Much Love
