Butterfly side table

Butterfly side table brings Spring into the house...

This time of year, it's great to bring a little of the Spring indoors, even though, truthfully, the weather around me has been more winter-like than anything.

I have been wanting to paint some butterflies on something, but needed a good medium on which to do it.

I have accumulated some inexpensive fold-up/stacked tables. The ones that are really cheap and used as little end tables or tv trays that you can find at any store for dirt cheap-I think I paid $2 for mine.

I have also accumulated an assortment of wood trays, so I decided to combine the two and came up with a really cute table that is perfect for displaying butterflies.

I attached a tray to the top of the table and painted it in  Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint.  Then hand stenciled my butterflies on top.  (I threw in a couple of dragonflies as well!).

I stenciled a butterfly on burlap and displayed it in a frame I had recently painted.  It is a nice touch on top of the table.

The result is definitely the Springtime feeling I was looking for. 
Now if only the weather would cooperate!

Sweet Crafting!
