This is really beautiful! Who would have thought something like this could be made out of a little book? You have a wonderful imagination and it shows in your creation! Just lovely!!

This is really nice!

I'd love to shop at your thrift shop, the ones around here aren't too thrifty. A cabinet like that would go for a couple hundred dollars or more.

That has loads of room for all your bits and pieces and they are easily seen! Also has loads of hidden storage. I'm really happy for you in your find, but also really, really envious!  Cheesy

What a cute dragon! From what I saw on sci-fi, he's much cuter than a wyvern! You did an amazing job of making him, I love it!

Thank you!!  We used just a plain router and it comes with a thingy ? Huh that you set to whatever depth you want it to go which was important since I wanted to inset the tiles and the glass on top of them.
Thanks again for looking!  We're really happy with how this came out.
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / table, lamp and lampshade. *lots of pictures* on: February 17, 2009 09:16:59 AM
It all started with a lamp I found at a yard sale. I seem to have a small lamp fetish since I loooove lamps that I consider to be unique. So anyway, this lamp sat on a shelf in my craft room for about six months before inspiration hit! My bf had a table that he didn't want anymore, so knowing how I feel about throwing things away, he asked me if I wanted to use if for anything. He was really being sarcastic because he thought I would think it was really ugly. And I did. But that's beside the point!

So, here's what we did with it:

we were just starting on routering (is that a word?) out the middle of the table

that was a whole lot of sanding!!

making sure the stain was the color I wanted

now it's starting to come together with the tiles

I finished putting the table together late at night, thank goodness. Nobody was around to see my happy dance!

I couldn't find a lamp shade that I liked that didn't cost wayy too much moolah, so I found one at big lots that I liked the shape of and covered it with fabric that had roses printed on it. Then I used seed beads to cover the printing and used lace on the edges to cover the cuts I made with the fabric. It was a tedious process, but I'm proud of it.

Here is the little bee that I painted on the tiles. I really like how he turned out. It always amazes me when something I paint turns out somewhat like I had planned. The bee and the rose bud are the only things that didn't get painted over 5 times and re-done until I liked it.

My bf wanted me to put a bee on the lampshade that matched the bee I painted on the tiles. So here it is! He really likes it and even though you can see the glue splotches, they don't show unless you're really looking and when the light is on, you can't see them at all. But of course the camera shows EVERYTHING! and shoves it back in your face. *sigh*

Here it is all together and in place.

I forgot to mention that the glass I used to put on top of the tiles came from a 1954 tv cabinet that we made into a printer cabinet a couple years ago. I'd been saving the glass for something special and it fit into this project perfectly!

Thanks for looking!
