I'm In!!! Did you guess which was mine...

Thanks to your votes, I get to officially play in Season 11 of So You Think You're Crafty!
I love taking part in these comtests, they provide a fun challenge that I just can't give myself.
The season doesn't start until April but I have the list of themes and will be anxiously working away on some fun projects.

Th auditon process is crafter's choice, here's what I choose to do:
My audition project was quite literally staring me in the face. Every time I sat on the couch, it just sat there, seeming to say, "Please help me to be pretty!"
It's was small train table that my kiddos had long outgrown. I couldn't stand the idea of tossing it and one day had the brilliant idea to convert it into a coffe table/ottoman thing--great idea, wrong approach. Long story short, my plan failed and I had since been staring at this poor thing:
The {new} plans all came together when my sweet neighbor rebuilt a section of her fence and had all these beautiful aged cedar planks heading for the trash pile.
I asked for a few (yes, she looked at me like I'm super crazy!), re-painted the table sides a smokey black, and used the planks to resurface the top.
It's sealed with several layers of polyurathane to prevent slivers and keep the cool aged coloring of the wood. I love it! The wood adds such warmth to the dark coloring.
{I think she finally feels pretty...}

It makes me smile every time I see it now and even better I can look at it and know that it sealed the deal for me to play along with some other really great and crafty ladies!

I'll let you know when the season starts cause you're not goig to want to miss it!
An really, thanks again for your votes!
