New for Sale! Retro Laminate Tabletop Wannabe

This design, my entry for the Pastel Café contest a while back, was inspired by the old school Formica laminates of the 60s/70s. In our house, I recall a Formica bathroom countertop in pinks and also barely remember an older kitchen table, possibly in silver on white. To make this design unique, I’ve used different motifs, layout, colors, and also kept it at a larger scale than the originals.

It’s a very versatile design with its non-directional feel. It has an overall marbled texture, most apparent on the light blue and light pink triangles, and more subtle on the antique gold triangle outlines and blue violet background.

If you like this design and would like to see it in a different colorway, I’d be willing to give it a go. Please leave any suggestions in the comments.

First, the fat quarter, test swatch, and yard views, of Retro Laminate Tabletop Wannabe:

And here are several home decor mock ups. I think it’s fun for tabletop items as well as bedding and accessories!

More “new for sale” items to be posted on Friday. In the meantime, I need to get back to my mushroom-y design – for the contest next week. Thanks for stopping by!
