Before and After: Cherry Blossoms and Blue Blossoms Accent Tables

Is it Sunday evening already?  I can't wait to crash and watch some Season 4 of Dexter with the roast I have in the oven!  Before I do, here's a look at the two accent tables I've been working on.  A reminder of the before...


I was so super excited to work with the Japanese paper I ordered a few weeks ago from Paper Source.  It truly did not disappoint.  Becase of the natural fibre construction, it's very durable so it held up well to the cutting, mod podging, smoothing and coating.  It's on the thinner side so diligence was a must for ensuring a smooth surface, but I'm so happy with how they turned out!

The first one is Cherry Blossoms with the prettiest red, pink and white floral pattern and I paired it with CIL's Blue Niche for the paint.




The second is Blue Blossoms and features the dreamiest floral pattern of blues and golds matched with the soft cobalt paint I recently picked up in the Benjamin Moore mistints section.




If you live in the Winnipeg area and are interested in purchasing either Cherry Blossoms Accent Table or the Blue Blossoms Accent Table, you can do so here and here!

Sweet dreams before back to work Monday friends...
