Little Side Table Project

Hi all!  I want to share some wedding projects and some other big news very soon, but for today I wanted to stop by with a quick project. 

We found this little side table at a garage sale for .50 cents.  Yup, .50 cents.

Shabby, yes, a bit.  But, I loved the round shape and primitive pedestal.  So, I patched, sanded and painted.  I picked a burgundy-ish color and then I stenciled my favorite paisley on the top in silver.  I thought this was a bit modern to mix with this little table.  I roughed up the edges and faded out the design on the top.  I think it turned out really cute!

What do you think?  Well, this little guy already found a new happy home 🙂

Wedding Decisions and Last Minute Changes

May 27, 2009 at 1:37 pm (Wedding Plans) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Well, it’s getting to be that time… the time when we need to start making actual decisions and booking things for the wedding.  We had a plan.  Small church wedding, outdoor reception, simple, vintage, black and white, and elegant.  I had a book full of clippings and notes.  And what happens?  We get a new, completely opposite idea and are making some last minute changes.

We are now contemplating the idea of a destination wedding.  A beach, sand, sun, bright colors.  We are meeting with a travel agent and looking at the possibilities.  It doesn’t sound like what I (thought) I had always wanted.  But, oh, how it does sound amazing.  Maybe it sounds so perfect because it’s what WE want and not what I had imagined as a little girl.  Well…we are pretty serious, although not yet booked, about the idea of a tropical getaway wedding with the closest of family and friends. 

 So, in my new planning stages I have been searching for new inspiration. I don’t like themes, and cheesey matchy-matchy decor, but would like to have bright, elegant flowers…not sure what else? 🙂  I thought I would share a bit with you:

This peach and teal combo looks so fresh and beach-y.

 

These centerpieces look beachy and summery, but not too frilly. 

 

Lilies are my favorite flower, and they work well for an island escape wedding.

 

Red and yellow would be a bright, fun combo of color.

 

 

As would teal and yellow!

Yup, I’d have to do this.  Or write my new name for the first time in sand.  Aw. 

Any tropical ideas for us?  Suggestions?  I will keep you all updated on what we decide!
