Ottoman for our small den

Standard

We have a small den that used to have a huge coffee table in front of the couch,  you had to walk around it and it didn’t leave much room for our dog to hang out.  I love working with old pallets so I figured I could make the top with one and then add some legs, padding and fabric – wa la….. an ottoman!!  My corners look a little rough and it’s not perfect – but it’s perfect for us!!

Pet Bed

I was on Face Book and saw a picture posted of a pet bed made from a TV set.  (not sure who to give the original credit to)  I just happened to have one up in a closet so I thought I would give it a try!  It’s not done yet, but I thought I would share what I have so far.

Mermaid Friends

Standard

I plan to eventually have 3 or 4 mermaids hanging on the tall wall in Joe’s Bar.  I figured they might need some water buddies so I decided to add some turtles, fish, seahorses and starfish to go with them.  One down, about a dozen to go…..

Living in Florida I manage to collect a ton of seashells so it only seemed natural that my next mermaid would be sporting some!  She was a blast to make.  Much more fun than the mosaic mermaid.  On this one the hardest part was the bra top AND the FACE.  I am REALLY bad at drawing faces – so you see I took the easy route!  My mermaids are all about silliness and fun, but if you’d like to check out some really beautiful ones go to my friends site www.LucyDesignsOnline.com and see the fantastic work she does.  Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy.
