When I opened my store Dreamingincolor, I wanted to be able to offer unique and creative handmade items. Something that sets us apart.
Something that showcases my art and others.
That is why I loved working on this project.
I like combining different pieces together to form an art piece. Like when I used an antique table leg seen here.
It is my funky junk that helped create this piece!
She came to the right place! I already knew I was going to use ceiling tile for the insert. These are faux tiles that you can find at Home Depot. To give them more of an authentic look a dabbed some paint to highlight some of the details. The right one is painted and the left is as is.
I also painted the entire frame in Arles.
There was a problem!
I couldn't get the size needed to go to completely cover the insert.
So I came up with another idea.
This is where some funky junk came in!
I painted some spindled chair rails and screwed them in the bottom of the opening. I wanted to have some spacing under the tile.
I distressed all of it!
But it really came to life when I added the detailing at the top!
It is truly a one of a kind!
That is what I like to offer at my store!!
The customer was thrilled with her newly repurposed piece.
I made it so that she can redo it one day if she wants to.
I am having so much fun with my store and being able to design and create for people is a dream come true!
