Constellation Themed Night Stand Makeover.

Hello again my Beauties!
Its time again for another round of Themed Furniture Makeover.
This months theme was ANIMAL.
As I was kicking around what I wanted to do
I finally made a decision.
The only problem was...
I didn't have a piece of furniture to put my vision on.
I had some pieces in my garage but none that fit my vision.
This is until we were coming home from grocery shopping and saw some dinky little garage sale.
I quickly slammed my body against the window as I saw the perfect piece sitting there in someones driveway.
Hubby, being hubby pushed down the gas...
he was in no mood after grocery shopping to ALSO stop at a garage sale. 
Luckily it was only about a mile from our as soon as he pulled in the driveway I grabbed my keys, hopped in my car and drove back to the garage sale.

There it sat...waiting for me...
I scooped it up for $7 
and brought it home and started working on my vision.

I gave it 2 quick coats of a custom black gray.

When it was dry I used some white craft paint and FLECKED on some 
Then it was time for the fun..
and stress.
FREEHANDING constellations doesn't seem that intimidating until you start.
I used a fine brush to paint little stars in an artist's rendition of some animal constellations
on Ursa Major and Lupus the wolf. 
I then drew free handed with the same brush the outlined animal of the constellations.

I had planned on going back and adding a few more constellations but time got away from me before my project was due. 
I am thinking I may just leave it like this.
It is simply and not over busy.
I also added just the constellation without the outline of LEO to the top just 
to add a bit more.
I really love how it turned out.
You know me...I love color, so it was fun to work with black and white and 
try to do a fun little graphic.
I hope you like it too.
Now head on over to see what all my bloggy friends did for their 
ANIMAL Themed Makeover.
I am sure they will not disappoint!
Until next time,
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!
