a pimped lack table by emily, which she also posted on craftster. she says it’s not decoupage but can you tell the difference? it looks just as good to me.
“i made this table years ago but i’m still proud of it. it’s made from pictures of Georgia O’Keeffe paintings from an art book i bought at a thrift store and a small ikea lack table my neighbor was throwing away! the pages were nice and thick so i could line up the edges of all the pictures very easily. after i glued all the pictures down nice and flat i covered it with many, many layers of varnish (top and legs separately), which yellowed the lighter parts of the pictures, but that’s okay because they’re bones and flowers!”
