From Throw Away... To Here To Stay

I actually made this a while back when I was in high school. My aunt's side table got damaged while moving her stuff into storage. She was going to through this damaged bedside table away and I said " I want it" after you telling me that it's too broke and she will just throw it away. I said. "Don't worry I have an idea for it" and indeed I did. So there was pieces broke and holes. Sorry I don't have many pictures because I made this way before I even had a blog but I will show you what I did to make it.

The top of the side table is made out of basket material.

 Which is easy to break. Here you can see the hole that it had,

I used my glue gun and a piece of think plastic that you can get off of plastic packaging from the store.

Then took a leopard skirt that I had but never used and glued it over the top.

 It looks as if I bought the side table like this.

Here is closer view.

I think it turned out amazingly.

 Next I added my leopard print pencil case that I use for other things.

I added a vase with flowers on top of it for a pop of color.

And lastly something very special to me, an autograph from one of my favourite childhood actors.

Under the table I place added bags that store things like make-up.

There you have it, you got to see one of my very early creations that I made. I should have started a blog back then. I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment to say how much you enjoyed my post or even say hi, follow me on Twitter, like my Facebook page or subscribe. I will do the same! Have a wonderful creative day!
