Times Table

This piece started out as 1. a cheap round table top with no legs and 2. a old rusty kerosene heater that was really in bad shape.  I attached to top to the heater and made a side table.  I painted the top and hand painted the design as well.  I love the rusty industrial chic mixed with the shabby Paris theme. It took me over a year to get the inspiration for this little table, I tried and tried and then one day there it was in my head plain as day. That's how things work for me.  I get to an impasse and have to walk away for a bit most of the time it isn't a whole year!


  1. Oooh, this is gorgeous! Great work! Would you consider sharing this here at my party?

I love it when things finally click in my head :) Thank you for sharing this at Rustic Restorations Weekend :) just curious, are you having trouble with your template staying on your blog and the advanced settings staying on your blog? I have been having trouble for the last 4 days!

    1. Thank you so much Tammy. I haven't been having trouble lately but I did in the past. I don't know what the trouble was I ended up contacting Google and they fixed it for me.

  5. Looks great. Sometimes it takes a long time to finish a project but it looks like it was worth the wait.

  6. Thank you June! Monday I will be back at it painting on a new project, I am trying to prepare and can't wait to get started. Today I have to work on a sign for work yuk but creativity will be wide open tomorrow!
