I've always dreamed and yearned to have a perfect, beautiful BUT a modular house. But being a newly wedded bride i couldnt just toss away all my jewellery and sophistication and sink myself back into paint cans and tool boxes wearing a pj... I had to give myself and my inlaws a few months to slowly get used to of my crazy but creative side...
So to just take a start toward decorating a new house I select my bedroom night stand to have new look. Wondering why new furniture would need a new look.. thats because I was bored of its looks *grins*
(Secret: i actually spilled thinner on my side nightstand and it looked HORRIBLE) well, you know now.. but its a "hushhh hushhh" thing ;)
Soooo.... another thing i would tell you is I LOVE DAMASK PATTERN. Once you'll go ahead on my journey you'll witness it yourself. Now coming towards the tabletop... i just took the measurements of my tables and got the glass. And drew a damask motif on a paper of desired size.
The technique I used was reversed glass painting. I used a glitter liner to trace my design pattern glass.
Then painted 2 coats of white paint on it.
The glitter liner gives a REALLY AHHH MAAA ZIINNNN effect when used in reverse technique.
Sorry i coudnt post before and after pics as forgot to click the before and its been a month i made these.
But you can picture the before version of top as the same color of legs. Plain gold.
The supplies needed for this project are:
Glass according to measurement
a glitter glass liner
white acrylic paint
a paper and pencil to trace design.
and just a bit of hardwork ;)
Do share your work if you ever try something similar.
KEEP DREAMING... KEEP DIY-ING! :)
