This is a side table I purchased at a yard same for $10.00.  The top was really bad, I sanded and sanded and then sanded some more.  Then I painted it.  I think this table is almost over the top......almost....but I love it anyway!

pizzawife writes: Thanks ladies.....No stencils are ever used. I usually put the design from my head onto paper and then just go for it. Some times it's a go, and sometimes, It's an "Oh No, what the H*** did I do". However, my house can only take so much of this crazy way of painting. I have to curb myself into some "regular" more conservative pieces. But it's just as much fun to paint.

I'm going to post a picture of a Mural I did for my husband's restaurant in Cincinnati, Ohio. Let me know what you think.

Wishing all of you a prosperous and healthy New Year! Posted: 11:51 am on January 2nd

FunktionalJunk writes: I agree with the others...not too over-the-top at all! I love the design on the top. Did you use stencils or anything or were you able to just see the design in your mind and go with it? Either way it works!
