From spittoons to tables

The spittoons are pieces cut from decorative spindles. I layered a couple of paint colors to get a brass look.
This is not the wallpaper I'm planning to use. It will be a red but something more Victorian looking. The tables were made with margarine tub lids, spindles, cardboard and various wood scraps. I still need to put a final coat of sealer on them but they've been painted and antiqued. I want them to look well used.

I am having fun making things with what I have on hand. Many of the accessories are going to have to be purchased so the more I can save now, the better.

Thank you, Kim. My favorite part of mini-ing is using what I have to make what I want.
