Millinery Table Complete

Finally i finished the millinery table last night. It's sold already and will be off to its new home tomorrow.
As usual the ligthing is not too great today and have struggled to get sharp photos.
Hope you like it as much as i do. I love making these tables, even though they take me longer than anything else i make they are such fun to work on.
I'm not a pink person but happy i based this around pink and sunset tones.


  1. This piece is spectacular Nikki, Id sooooo love one myself, I adore the colours. The lower shelf idea worked really well, its so stacked to the brim with goodies. You can tell you love doing this style, are you sure you wouldnt like to dress my mad hatter hat table for me , youd do it so well lol!!! Lucky lucky owner, will we get to see it in its new home at all? Kate xxx

  2. Nikki, it is absolutely beautiful. Your Customer is going to be thrilled with it. Love all the colours..xxxx

  3. I LOVE your work, Nikki - you are an inspiration to this 'old witch'!

  4. I don't think the lady has a blog... i'll check with her later this evening.
    As usual i'm not happy with the photos and wish i could make the table look exactly how i see it minus my bad photography.

    Kate if you study my table you could do this too. Its not hard but it does take a lot of time and almost every drawer pulled out to make, plus lots of waiting for things to dry etc. I spent about an hour a day for a week or two making this. Do you have the images for sewing items i sent in an email. Let me know if i should email them again.

  5. Nikki I do have some of the patterns and Kat found some too, do you just print them onto normal paper or do you use something else like parchment so it looks like tracing paper? xxxxx

  6. You could use parchment which would be perfect.
    You will have to glue the edge maybe to normal printer paper on the section that first feeds into the printer.
    I uses tissue paper i glues on alll edges to printer paper to bet it through.

  7. One word, Nikki! Fantastic! You did it again!

  8. lord above, look at my typing above Casey.
