My mosaic table went the way of all flesh after I was unable to locate any tiles in just the right shade of gold. As I wandered around B&Q, I decided that black and gold was still the way forward, and that I would paint a cherry blossom design on the table.
After smashing two cans of paint right next to the checkout (what are the odds, and moreover it was just as embarrassing as it sounds!), I replaced the two cans, went home and disappeared into the garden to paint.
Two days later and seven coats of varnish, I am in love. Pictures will be forthcoming as soon as my camera is charged. Yey!
