Hodge Podge 'O Life. . .

Well, it's a hodge podge of the past seven and a half years. This is the table SuperDad made me last week to fold laundry and cut fabric for quilts on. I wanted to pep it up a little and add some pictures. Um, it turned out to be 104, so far. It's almost done.
This is when I was clueless as to how I would lay out all these pictures! Talk about overwhelmed!

Ahhh. . . Now it's coming to me. Then I start to wonder: will I start Modge-Podging these from the center or shall I start on an edge?

Here's where I am today. I had SuperDad help me mark the vertical and horizontal center and I started placing pictures in the middle. The above pictures are already mounted and waiting on the rest to go down. After that I'll do a second coat and hopefully seal it with something. Polyurethane would surely yellow over time, and I don't know that SuperDad is willing to epoxy the whole top. We'll see. I should have a finished top tomorrow. I'll let you know.


P.S. Every time SuperDad walks by this table, he says, "That sure is a lot of pictures. . ."
I figure there's no sense in doing a half-a** job. Why not do it right?

Maybe you can find a piece of glass or something to put over the top! It really is neat!

Oh, Jenny! That's so sweet that he built you a laundry/quilt table!

I was thinking that maybe you could get a piece of plexi-glass cut for it? It's pretty lightweight (and doesn't break!)and I'm pretty sure that you could get it at either a glass shop or Home Depot, etc.
My husband is at work so I can't ask him........

The modge podge might be a little sticky and your fabric would stick.
But I may just be thinking about that's what would happen to ME -- it's ULTRA humid down here (you may not have that problem!!!)
