Still creative...sorta

I have to admit, I am having some trouble settling in. Two major moves in one year seem to have upset my Libran scales. I may not be painting paintings but I am working on things like my sideboard top/Tchotchke holder thingy.

I bought this top a couple of years ago at a yard sale and have been lugging it around. It's quite heavy and was missing the centre mirror and the second side panel. The wood was in pretty rough shape.

Now it adorns my dining room wall. The panels were replaced with masonite board covered in textured wallpaper until such time as I can afford to replace one/all of them with mirror. Thanks to HGTV for the inspiration. I really like accents of brightly painted furniture. I can hardly wait to decorate this for Day of the Dead.
