I am sure I have a Crafting Attention Deficit Disorder. I am always jumping from one craft to another. This week it was all about doing some broken China mosaic projects.
A cute little step stool
And a Lucite hand mirror
The step stool was $2.93 find and was painted this great vintage green
It is so hot in Florida, when I bring the camera outside it gets all foggy
I painted it heirloom white
I like to lay most of my china pieces out in a pattern before I use the tile adhesive.
I did a little distressing to get some of the great vintage green paint to peak through.
This is a vintage $2.00 lucite mirror. There was a mirror on both sides, so one side was begging for a little mosaic.
Broken china and a vintage brooch, I really like the way it turned out!
I am going to put both of them in my antiques booth here in Orlando.
OK, now I have to tell you a funny story. My Mom called while I was working on the stool. I told her what I was doing and how cute it was turning out. Her only comment was "Well won't that tile make it slippery, how are people going to use it? "
You see, all of us crafty, shabby, people see a cute little step stool, and we start thinking about how cute it would be on our patios or in our houses with plants or nick nacks on it. The rest of the world see's a step stool and worry about slipping off!
Tell me I am not the only one that jumps from one craft to another! I have never been able to just sew or scrapbook for day's.
