So this week is Weddings Week in Boise and the show was having an “Artfully Designed Table Contest” where the contestants design a table that would be at a wedding. Since we are NOT wedding decorators, we took the opportunity to showcase print work since we do invitations, menus, favor tags, and any other print work that would be needed for a wedding. After lots of hard work and spray paint, we finished our table and we are pretty dang proud of it too!!
THE BREAKDOWN:

The table is made from an old door that we got from Diamond Street Recycling and we bolted cut 4 x 4’s for the legs and spray painted the whole thing brown.

Cool knick knacks and mini encyclopedias on table we found at The Shabby House and other local second hand stores

Random chairs were found at furniture consignment stores and spray painted Sun Yellow along with knick knack items

Birdcages were found online at Graples and spray painted brown

All print work was designed by yours truly—& Studios the invitation and favor tags were mounted on real stained wood veneer with a custom-lined envelope.

HOPEFULLY WE WIN!!! We will keep you posted—winner gets an article in the ZWeddings Magazine.

    You two should be decorators. Seriously. I love everything about this, especially the randomness of things i.e. mismatched chairs, etc. Love it:)

    You are welcome to snag it for your blog—we are both in agreement that we will leave the decorating to the pros— we just like unique stuff to shoot! So hopefully we can inspire some people.

    Ladies, I loved your table!! Not only was your personal design work amazing, but you pulled the whole look together wonderfully. You stayed creative and budget friendly, while also making a DIY household look. I am completely inspired by this, and might just have to make a table of my own after seeing yours!
    Do you mind if I share this on my own blog?
