Little Mosaic cabinet Finally Done!

Little Mosaic cabinet Finally Done! Looking fab in Black

I can’t believe I am saying the words but little cabinet is done. It took a little doing, the cabinet started a light brown then I painted it  a dark brown and then a navy blue and finally black.

First I thought it would be a great in dark brown but I wasn’t loving it so I changed it to a navy. I loved the color but maybe it was too matchy matchy with the blue in the mosaic. It sat there and sat there. I had intended to stencil it (way too much I know) something didn’t seem right. So it sat there and sat there for weeks until I spotted a fab black piece at black cabinet-detail-smCreative Inspire Blog. Yes, yes  now I know what to do paint it black! I distressed it a little and voila. I think t looks great, the velvety black is a great contrast to yellow and blue mosaic. I finally figured it out’ took me a while but I got there, until next time. -Lucky Girl Melissa

Stencil Vs Mosaic

Stencil verses MosaicAfter I had refinished a few pieces of furniture I started to show people what I was up to. I would pull out my phone and proudly show off my babies. My two big projects to date were my Stenciled coffee table, nicknamed The Table and my mosaic table, nicknamed The Beauty. Much to my surprise people

started to take sides between one table verses the next. I noticed that people who preferred the stenciled table really didn’t like the  Mosaic and they would say so. But the people who preferred the mosaic table tended to like both they just preferred the mosaic.  Interesting, I am a live and let live kidda girl, I love both. Which to you prefer? Till next time.
