Painted Apothecary Table

I am so excited about this latest project.  I think it turned out really well.

I found this little reproduction Apothecary table at Goodwill some time back for $4.99.  I like the price  and I immediately had a vision of what it could look like.  I don't have a before picture, but trust me when I say, it was green.  I wanted this table to be something special, so I got creative.

Here it is after I applied the base coat.

And, here it is finished and all dressed up.

Remember my trip to Hobby Lobby?  Well this is why I needed the leopard print scrapbook paper.  I applied the paper using Mod Podge. 

I also lined the drawers with leopard print.

I sits across from the back door and will be a great place to put our keys.

    I visited your blog today. Your blog is so pretty, and you have many creative ideas. While I was scrolling down, I noticed all your decorations. I would love to see some of your Valentine decor when the time comes around. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is simple and filled with beauty, and it has inspired me to get going and decorate. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
