Table Leg Dragonflies and Butterflies, More Zebra's and Peacocks

I've been making a bunch of butterflies and dragonflies lately!
The peacock design has been pretty popular so I made a few more

I really love the colors on the peacock wings

I adore animal prints, especially zebra...
You can check out the categories section to see the other animal prints I've made.

This one has green glass eyes and rusty antenna.

I had already made a yellow zebra butterfly and wanted to 
make a dragonfly with that design too...I've even painted an armoire in yellow zebra.

I had small brass rivets I wanted to use so I predrilled holes and pounded the rivets into the wooden body

I also added this funky brass knob to the body.

This one is not officially "zebra" would be more of a tiger stripe in blue and orange for 
Auburn University.

A fun way to show team spirit...this one sold before I could even list it in my Etsy Store
People are serious about their teams!

Another zebra dragonfly...

I twisted the tines of an old fork for the antenna and used a rusty hinge for the eyes.

In my recent Architectural Angel post, I described how I turned a bunch of metal
pieces all rusty and aged using hydrogen peroxide and salt

Here's peacock wings again but this time edged with a lil' leopard print

up close...

A decorative metal piece for the eyes and twisty wire antenna

And one more dragonfly in the peacock series...
I love the distressed teal body on this one


I used two of my rusty washers and glass beads for the eyes and rusty wire antenna.

Hey, did you know that dragonflies only have very small antenna that you usually can't even see?
I only know because I get a lot of emails telling me this LOL :)

Yes, most of my dragonflies have large antenna along with zebra, peacock feather, seashell, flag or other types of painted wings... which I've never seen on a real dragonfly.
So...I'm thinking it's all good and I love the look of the antenna on my fantasy dragonflies! :)
