Raised Plaster Pedestal

I was hoping to share a Pinterest inspired project this week but we just couldn't get the finishing touches done so I will share it next week.  This week I'm sharing a simple two-tiered pedestal that I found at the flea market.  It's totally vintage and was painted a not so exciting plain white.
I spruced it up with some aqua paint on the base and left the shelves white.  I added one of my favorite black and white images with my reverse mod podge method that I have shared countless times.
I used an inexpensive stencil and dabbed some joint compound to give it some three-dimensional features and I love the end result.
Here are a couple of my latest projects and some new images I have been using that go along with this same theme.  I love the aqua with the black and white.

This is a great color combination and aqua is a really popular color this year.
And now for some exciting news.  I've been a vendor at the Little French Flea Market for the last year and have loved the experience of having one-on-one contact with my customers.  Well, now there is the Little French Flea Market Warehouse, and I just joined in on the fun.  This is where all my projects that I do for the flea market will be while we are getting ready for the next big event.  I, of course, am still a vendor at Aubergine Emporium in Simi Valley, California so you can find me in both places.
The warehouse is open Thursday through Sunday the 4th weekend of every month or by appointment.
This is a fun place to shop and I'm very excited to be joining this group of fine dealers.  You can follow Little French Flea Market on Facebook to receive updates and contact information.

Thanks for your visit.  As always I love it when you drop by.
