Last week, on my lunch break, I went thrifting. It was… well let’s just say it was super fun. Finding awesome stuff and ridiculously low prices is gratifying to me in a way that I can’t explain. And so I shant.
I bought this weird floral wall-hanging thing. I almost didn’t buy it, because $4.99 seemed a little pricy to me. But I just couldn’t help but see the good in her, and all the things I could do to improver her.
This is what she looked like to begin with. Not bad… just needing a bit of a makeover is all.
Then painted the branches and leaves white, while leaving the sides of the leaves the original bronze. I also left the petals of the flowers their original shimmery metallic color.
At which point I slapped on a little tinted glaze to the leaves, followed by wiping it off with Nick’s dirty sock… leaving the glaze in the cracks and crevices. ‘did you just say crevices?’ Yes, yes I did say crevices.
My process is shown in the following 3 pictures:
I love the way it turned out.
Love love LOVE the way it turned out.
And she will live in my kitchen.
Making sweet music with the chic dark teal walls.
And they will live happily ever after.
