Don't know if you all remember this white wooden tray that I acquired from an Estate Sale. Being that I already had one, I bought it not knowing what I was gonna do with it...I do this all the time.
...and for you late comers... A while back I was looking for a Turquoise sofa. I don't know why, I just had that color on my mind and once I have something on my mind...I had tunnel vision. The only Turquoise sofa I found that I actually liked was over $2,500 and If I wanted to continue to be married, that was out of the question. Although finding one was harder than I thought, I figured I would buy something else and incorporate that color in my den somehow. The decor in my den is very Santa Fe ish mixed with Mexican vintage pieces and so I thought this color would fit right in.
Here is the new sofa but honestly, I wasn't diggin' all the pillows that much...so I covered a few of them.,...
The new covered pillow goes very well with the new tray that I painted turquoise and huge flowers similar to the ones I have in a vase.
After I painted it, I took some sand paper to it to make it look old and worn.
and Voila'...we have Turquoise in the Den. I've been a crafting dervish lately..more stuff to come.
