totally rockin'

When I posted my orange lampshade DIY a few of you asked about that little rock box that was on the table. 


Well the idea came from these Eduardo Garza and Plantation boxes I had seen




I liked the pink one best, so I put on my thinking cap and came up with my own version



I think it adds some nice color to this ugly brown side table (which needs to go, but right now that little project is at the bottom of the to-do list)


So happy its Thirsty Thursday, I really could use a cocktail right about now (see here to know why).

Check ya later.

Could you be any more clever and handy?! And I'll bet with a little paint that ugly table might not have to go!!

very cute! It definitely adds a nice color to the table. Not to worry, we all have "ugly brown side tables" in our lives (or something like them). At least you have such a good eye for decorating them well and covering it up!!

DO tell, where did you happen to find the lucite box? What did you use to adhere the stones, epoxy?

Thanks!!
