Decoupage - My craft table

Returning after a month to blogosphere. Life was hectic, due to father's health issues I had become like a shuttle between hospital and home. Due to stress I could not make anything. Now everything is sorted out. After his bypass surgery, my father is back to normal life. Returned to native Kumta.   Slowly life is coming back to normal. I  needed some refreshment, what else can refresh me other than my passion Arts and Crafts :)

As any craft person, even I always wished to have a craft room. I worked in many forms of arts and crafts, from sewing to paper craft, thread crafts like crochet, tatting , jewelry making, school projects, painting, sketching.... ( jack of all master of none :)). But the major problem with any crafts person is accumulation of crafts materials. I'm not an exception to it. Family members always blame about the loads of craft materials. Its obvious that a crafts person needs a well organized place with craft materials. I also wished the same, but I did not have a separate room for this. I turned a small unused space in my house into craft room.  In a craft room the craft table is very important. For me its comfortable to sit on floor and work on crafts. So I preferred a short table. Got it done by a carpenter. I told the carpenter to not to polish it so that I could decorate it according to my idea.

I thought decoupage will be the best, so chose a picture to paste on it. Here it is, with the picture I selected to decoupage:

First applied the wood primer , and pasted the picture on the top of the table.

The extended the picture with little bit of oil painting:

Finish it with painting on the borders. I thought dull brown color would look better, instead I selected bright colors. As this is the table where I spend time exploring my creativity. It should be bright :)
 I always like Kuttchu designs, so attached the Kuttchus made of woolen thread on the edges:
Then with the final application of varnish, the table is ready.

My wish to have a separate craft table for my craft works is fulfilled with this decoupaged small table. Slowly arranging all my craft materials. My wish is to have handmade organizers. So decorating each of those with different ideas. Surely I will take into my craft room when it is completely ready.

Until then,

Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
