This furniture project first appeared as a guest post on The Thrifty Rebel.
When Tuula calls wanting a few guest posts, bloggers run to comply dragging pink stuff over there.
She anointed us "The Pink Ladies".
Like the girl gang from Grease.
Mel brought pink stools and her pinkadelic boots.
So I am adding a ballerina slipper pink table with a blue bird and a cat.
Because Tuula loves cats with pink noses.
And blue birds.
And pink furniture.
And I am guessing she wears shoes.
So this is an official Miss Peepers approved post.
Take one nondescript black table of the 1950's variety.
I think John and Olivia may have danced on this one.
Mix some extra-thick homemade ballerina slipper pink paint and slather it on.
I wanted the table to look like it had years of paint on it.
Now for the blue bird.
I used a stencil to block out the painting.
This is how it looks after just the stenciling.
Look I even threw in some kind of berry plant.
Tuula loves to garden.
Time to start the painting.
I used a liner brush and white paint to highlight.
Next I added some cinnamon paint to add depth.
I added some details to the painting - like an eye for the bird.
Eyeless birds are so pathetic.
An inset shot of the berries.
The light kept changing because of storms making the color of the photos wonky.
At least that's my story.
A blue bird on a pink table styled with baskets, vintage linens, and a kitty.
Let's take a closer look.
Hey, wait a minute.
Where's the real cat?
Miss Peepers says all this blogging nonsense is tough business.
She's taking a kitty nap in the sun.
I think I'll join her.
