A little Glimmer

I am starting on a family room redo. Now it is sage green and mauve but I am changing it to white, taupe, and grey blue. This is my first project. The table is modern but it was an unfinished piece that I already owned so I'm using it. It has a display drawer in the top.
I painted the whole thing cream and rubbed a metallic champagne color over the top in three coats. It really glimmers in the evening with the lights on. 
I picked up these porcelain doll heads at the flea market over the summer. I laid them on top of a layer of vintage buttons on a beautiful vintage tray.  Hubby said " Is that for Halloween, because it's creepy". 
What do you think....creepy? Isn't that a gorgeous tray. That was a flea market find also.
Now I need to get the room painted and some cushions made. Come help me pick a color! Please!

Rose ~Victorian Rose ~ said... your coffee table..I need one of those..been looking for the PERFECT coffee table for years. And the doll heads and buttons are terrific together.

BTW...I look for blogs that have anything to do with Rose, Cottage, Victorian or Vintage.

Come over and visit when you are rested.

Thank you,

Ahh, I see why you enjoyed my girl - you like dolls too :) I learned how to create her thru Joanna's Moss Hill Studio Workshop, you're able to purchase the class and take it online (I love online classes).

And no, not creepy. Your finished re-do looks fantastic!
