*Startling News* And a New B4&After

Hello Thursday!

Ready for some startling news?  I'm serious!  Brace yourselves! I, Christie, have never in my life used Mod Poge! I know!  How in the world was I ever an art teacher and not know how to use Mod Podge!  Sad, but true!  And I must confess, it took a little to figure it out!  Once I figured out it is just like hanging wall paper, it went so much more smoothly...including the sheet music!



One really cool thing about this little table is the sheet music!  The music is printed with blue ink. Very cool!  And how ironic, but the title of the piece is "Which Way America?"  I was starting to feel the whole "America the Beautiful" "Red, White, & Blue" thing.  Had a hard time deciding on painting it red or cream.  Cream won this time. Next one I do, will be red...or navy...no red...Oh who knows!  Maybe one of each :)

Have to once again give kudos to Miss Mustard Seed!  Don't you just love all the ideas Miss Mustard Seed can stir up?  From sheet music to moss...wax to trim...she's covered the gamete on products, tips, and tricks.  I just love it when someone else has shared their successes and failures (though I wouldn't quite call them failures)...saves me time!  Which in turn, allows me to do what I do best!  CREATE!...and shop:)  And that's just what I did with this little table!
I'm not quite sure what this table was used for originally.  It could have been a telephone table, but most likely a night stand.  And oh is it HEAVY!  I think the dresser I bought the other day weighs less lol~ 

I hope you find inspiration here and create something beautiful!
Enjoy~
Christie
