|Sorry bout the sunlight thru the blinds. Please nobody tell my photographer friend.|
|Now some of you may wonder (cough ,my father-in-law, cough) why would anyone strip a perfectly good table.|
UMMM cause I like it.
|So let's review what we have learned. |
1. Do not let the kids sniff laquer thinner.
2. Not all wood tables are solid wood
3. Metal grinder with worn out pads GOOD... new pads Bad
and a bonus 4th lesson
If you promise your 14yrd old neighbor boy pancakes he will help you move your table in
and out of your house as many time as you want.
|Now doesn't this look like the perfect table for a plowboy and his herd?|
|Recognize it? Y'all call it jute.|
|Look at the difference in the distressed paper. Perfect style for almost everything I make.|
|This is what I came up with. Yep, you guessed it Kraft Cardstock! I have decided to use my name as my business title. I have concerns that it appears somewhat narcisstic but I would hate to invent a cute name and later outgrow it. Candy Ogg I will always be. And so I shall plaster it everywhere. The chicken wire accent has grown on me. I have always loved the farm life but as I gain confidence in who I am, I feel as though I can use the country accents in subtle ways without appearing too hokey. After all, I do have most of my teeth.|
|Here is the finished product. I hope they enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed making them.|
|I immediately thought of these clutches.|
|She loved them, but threw in a little twist. "Can you personalize them?" HA. Can I personalize them? Sure I can. But how? I didn't think the typical embroidered monogram would suit these fabrics or the achieve the look I was wanting. So, after some head scratching I got it.|
Wait for it
Wait for it
|BAM. Maybe a little something like this!|
|Custom printed fabric labels.|
|And of course they will need a candy ogg designs label. We can't have all these adorable bags running around town without a little advertising now can we?|
