ok, as suggested by my sneaky, subtle title its shabbu. u’ve all seen it b4, 3 sections of jigsawed wood put together to create a not-so-robust half moon table. However, my craft, as obvious, is primarily the pain finish. i apologize (wow-americanism….red line thru it aaaaaaaaaaaaaand…..) apologise 4 the picture quality, but the screen on my only camera is broken, and it has no view finder!! modern tecnology my a**e. Anyway, watcha think people of woodworking wisdom?

As a footnote, in the ‘tags’ section it says ‘skill’- there isnt an option for low…......but if there was…............

-- after hours of labour, i've broken it more....but at least it's colourful!!!

As they say in the trade, “Hey, you can’t see it from my house.. ” Jussst kidding- this is a very colorful piece that would have fit in nicely in my daughters bedroom when she was a teenager at home. She is still a hippy chick and still wears clothes that are very much like your table. That style in furniture is too bright for my eyes but the kids do love it and your table is really cute. Reminds me of the psychedelic 70’s and maybe parts of the Beatle’s “White” album. :) Keep building- your skill will improve and it’s fun! and you will have more stuff to paint! :)

Yes I’m seeing a theme here m8. Very arty. If you need help on the construction front please feel free to ask. However I’ve seen/done similar in my (shadier) past. Seriously keep it going. If you don’t already feel you have you’ll find an ouvre soon. People take furniture far too seriously. It should be more fun, like this.
