Pomp And Circumstance

Some Stuff On The Side…

Posted in D.I.Y., Decor Files, Inspiration by Miss Circumstance on May 12, 2010

I built this side table several months ago and have had no idea what to do with it. I keep waiting, hoping I’ll see something that I like somewhere or something that sparks an idea.

I’ve thought about covering parts of it in wallpaper samples a la this idea from Design Sponge

I’ve thought about writing words all over it a la this couch from HGTV’s Design Star 2009

It's a little hard to tell in the picture, but Nathan (the guy who did this), wrote words all over this white leather couch. I have no idea what the heck I would write all over my table. Maybe something meaningful like "Alright stop, collaborate and listen...."

 I googled “DIY Side Table” and here is some cool stuff I found-

Just kidding on this one...although my son would love it

Found this random product that looks pretty cool called sticview. It actually looks like exactly that kind of thing I need. I'll have to check out the prices..

We’ll see what I end up deciding. On another note, I have a couple other projects that I hope to have finished soon to show you. One is my littlest boys room, and the other is that DIY string pendant that I posted about before. I did do it….but something bad happened! If I was better at this blog thing, I would have taken pictures of the disaster that ensued to show you, but I didn’t even think about it as I was tossing my labor of love into the garbage. I did learn something though, and so tenacity prevails and I will try again!

    I like the wallpaper idea. I would have never thought of putting wallpaper on a table! Although, now that I think about it, my first dorm room had sticky paper on all the wood surfaces (the desk, the closet drawers). It was awful! But that was because the previous resident had opted for a “brick wall” wallpaper. Why?!

    You have some skill assembling a table, and having other DIY projects! I can hardly make toast without burning it…

    Best of luck with your future projects.
