This is my table that I painted white, along with the chairs...I re-upholstered them.


Not the Greatest Picture, sorry.
This is the freehand painting I did, got the idea off of the internet somewhere on google

http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_430xN.31753454.jpg

My litte mirrors on there were my idea.  They are mirrors from hooks that I got at the dollar store.  I just unscrewed the hooks and put them on the wall with tacks....

This is the light cover I made out of plastic cups, drilled holes in them with my dremel tool. Strung them together with fishline.  I got the idea from the post on craftster. The Plastic Sparkle Light Ball Tutorial.......

...Which i tried to do and I decided that I was going to make a cover for an exsisting light.





Any comments and questions welcome.  Thanks for looking.

Beautiful!  Really elegant and put together, and you can't tell it's plastic cups and dollar store mirrors.  Nice work!

What a classy room I especially like the tree.
It would be really cool if you had a bunch of wallet size photos of your family printed in black and white and framed in mini frames to hang on the tree. (That's what I thought the mirrors were at first glance.)
