Color Block Craft Table and Accessories

In the Designer's Words: "Having a workspace that inspires creativity and keeps all your craft supplies organized can really make your crafting and art making time efficient and fun. I made this large worktable out of a piece of plywood and Plexiglass with squares of Fairfield Oly Fun Craft Material in between for a modern color block look. The layers are all held together with office supply binder clips.
The center support of the worktable is a stack of recycled books! The coordinating desk accessories were embellished with all different types of paint and foil. The stemware glass balls were painted with Testors paint. The glasses were painted with Design Master's Tint It and Uber Matte paint. The jewelry box was given a new look with Plaid's Ceramcoat Chalk Ultra Matte Acrylic paint. The little square plates were embellished with Therm-O-Web Deco Foil scissors. The little plastic animals were colored silver with the Testors Enamel Paint Marker. And since I plan on spending a lot of time at my new craft table coloring in books like Leisure Arts' Art of Coloring Mandalas I sewed a new cushion for the vintage stool and embellished it with a Simplicity Superman Applique."
