Before and after

A few months ago I found this table at a Moving-On sale in Goodwood.
I’d gone to the sale hoping to pick up a mannequin but my entry number was one of the last ones called, so there were only unwanted dregs left for me. Peeved, I thought I should at least justify the trip by purchasing something, and lit on this. R50 = score!

Mosaiced and sprayed and socked, it is now this:

And I don’t mind telling you that everyone who saw it on Saturday laughed themselves silly at the crocheted socks. But I don’t care. I think socks are going to be the Next Big Thing for furniture. Am I alone in this, or does anyone agree with me?

To be continued…

    Oh yeah ~ chair/table socks are the NEXT.BIG.THING. I have been coveting a set I found making the rounds on Pinterest and they are kitchy and cute :) Well done on the mosaic ~ love the colors!

      I see – so I’m not quite the trendsetter I thought I was… :(
      Thanks for compliment, I love mosaicing tables. In fact, have quite a few in semi-worked-on stages, now that I think about it. Time to dig them out.

    Love the bootees, but what did you want a mannequin for? You can’t just drop that in and leave it to my imagination, because that’s generating some very strange images involving mosaics, lampshades and rope!
