I have a very large white table that used to be my grandmothers. It is a very nice sturdy piece that has been around for years. The design is basic and contemporary but I want to alter it. Currently it's finished out in white formica, but I plan to decoupage it.
I am thinking about covering it with all the old trail maps I've kept the past few years, along with hand written trip stories, poetry, my favorite photographs, etc... It would be a conversation piece and have personal history attached to it that is meaningful. I also think I can make it very beautiful to look at by embellishing it with natural things.
Another option that popped into my head that I briefly entertained would be offensive to my Christian friends and family, but it's art and sometimes art is offensive. I could take pages of the bible and completely cover the table in the more choice verses and stories that we atheists often laugh about, find atrocious, or argue with Christians over. But I'm not sure if I want Ben reading that stuff just yet. I may find some other smaller piece of furniture in the future for that project. I think there could be a market for arty altered furnishings. Anyone have a piece of furniture they would like me to alter?
