Cutting table redo

Okay, I have been a busy girl! After the lamp I did yesterday turned out so great.  I had planned to redo the cutting table or at least make it look more attractive.  After I did the lamp, it just made the table scream FIX ME! So ... I did!

 I got a closet rod and made some curtains to hide all my as opposed to junk?  After that was done I started eyeing my pressing pad.  It was gold! That certainly didn't go with the rest of my room.  Then I saw the left over material from the curtains.  Yep, still plenty there to cover it.  I pulled out my handy dandy electric staple gun and went to town.  Getting the staples out where I had attached the prior cover was the hardest part.  Those suckers were in there!  I pressed on and got them all out.  I am so glad I recovered it.  It was the perfect touch.  You can also see where I did some stencil work on the ends.  I loved doing that.  They are so easy to do and it really added to the table.  It is really coming along well!  I can't wait to show you all of it.  Each time I complete something it makes me even more restless to do another project.  It is like seeing  the finish line and it pumping you up to go further! I look around at my room and it is coming together so great. The curtains are screaming at me to fix them!  I mean the leopard print was here when I moved in.  I never had the need to worry about changing them out.  But now.... man they gotta GO! I have some material to make some more.  Curtains that actually match the room.  Not as much pink in them as the table though.  I dont mind a little bit, but not all over.  I will have to see..who knows... I guess we will just have to wait and see!

Till next time,
