PRODUCT STORY
Tara says: "EAT" was my interpretation of an assignment for Lilla Rogers' Make Art that Sells class. The completed piece was to include a floral motif, with assigned two colors (mine were blue and yellow) with neutrals of choice and was to include at least one word. I wanted to make a piece that reflects my love for vintage and flea market finds and "EAT" was the result. If you are looking to add some fun to your dining space or kitchen and love vintage and flea market finds, this might be the piece for you.

This also features chicken wire and the vintage lights made from coffee filters and wallpaper scraps. I'd love a collection of chairs like this around my table. I painted this on a ceiling tile for added texture. The bulbs are wood cutouts and one chair has brass upholstery tacks for trim.

Tara's different use of media to create EAT is incredible. We also love that her inspiration comes from vintage and flea market shopping. Would you like to find this design at your local thrift shop?

I love this original, creative use of mixed media. Everything about it is appealing, from the colors and textures to the vintage chairs, garden (succulents?) and lighting. Nice!
