I saw the most gorgeus shabby coffee table on Kim Saulter's blog 'It's a Miniature Life', you can see her one here. I knew I had to try and make something similar. I'm finding lots of shabby inspiration at Kim's blog!
I used a metal mini frame for the table top and had such fun finding pictures and things to fill it up. The word 'WISH' is made from the alphabetti pasta that Sabiha sent me, I painted the letters white.
The whole thing is a bit rickety, lol! I'm just so impatient to make things for the shabby house. I used 1mm thick wood because I can cut that easily with a craft knife. The table legs I made using some sticks of wood that someone at the club was throwing out. I keep every scrap of wood and when I want to make something I hunt through it all to see if I can make what I want with minimal cutting. The only tools I have at home are a craft knife and a mitre cutter. One day I WILL own a table saw!
More shabby mini's to come! Oh! I'm having way too much fun and spending way too much time on the furnishings for that little house!
