This little table begged for a strong design, so I felt that good old Argyle would fit the bill wonderfully. The pattern is done in 4 versions, flowing nicely together at the edges. I will hate to see it go when it sells.

I was just wondering if you had to DRAW this on and then paint it or what. I guess was just amazed at the intricacy of the design. It turned out so perfectly I didn't think anyone could do this by hand. Fabulous job, Georgia Posted: 7:05 pm on February 19th

How long did it take? I'm thinkin' I need some more info. I can't wrap my feeble little brain around this. Please help..I'm getting a headache just thinking of all those angles and patterns, Georgia Posted: 6:07 pm on February 18th
