What do you want for $3.00 bucks?

I had nothing to lose were my thoughts on this cruddy little piece!
Found it at the GOODWILL, was calling my name...take me pleazzzzzzzzzz
 And cruddy it was!
 Starting to come to life, but I can't stop what color combo to use?
 Yes these three go nicely together....and what do I see a knife too?

As you can see I really funked it up! and it matches the piece in the corner....

This was easy...
After my initial color was dry, all I did to the top was take some stencil tape and make an X...
I then panited two triangles the red, and two triangles the tangerine.
Once that was dry, I took my copper color with a paper towel and rubbed it all over to give the aged look.
The knife was used to scrape the piece...I just went crazy scraping the edges and top...I wanted it to look beat up...I would say it does!

I will be joining some fun parties today:
Show and Tell Friday
Junkin Finds
Miss Mustard seed
Inspiration Friday
Feather your Nest 

And don't forget to check out this pretty necklace that can be yours

Score! The table looks darling! You're a wonder with paint! The whole vignette looks great, but I have to tell you that light is the enemy of coffee beans. You need to get them out of the glass jar and put them in an opaque canister. Of course if they're purely decorative beans, then feel free to ignore me.
