This is going to be a very, very short post!
Because I forgot to take pictures of the “during” process! I get so frustrated with myself when I do that!!! I just get rolling on something and the next thing I know, I’m done…….without pictures!!
Oh, well. I think you’ll get the gist of my project anyway!!
I love the trend of initials in design and I’ve been keeping my eye out for one that met my “criteria”!
I hadn’t had much luck til I was in a craft store recently and wandered down the “clearance-80% off” aisle!
There she was…………
She was the perfect size, font shape and thickness I wanted. But not the right color! So I got out my Annie Sloan paint in country grey and gave her two coats and one coat of dark wax!
She looks almost like leather now but she was a little flat and needed some bling! (of course)!!!
I started applying upholstery tacks around the edge and ran out so I hung it on the wall so I could live with it a couple of days.
I really liked the finishing touch of the tacks but they were still too “dull” so I purchased some shiny brass ones!!!
I love how it “pops” now! Just enough bling!!!
Morale of this story…..never judge a book by its cover and most important…..
remember to take pictures when you’re doing a project!!
Until next time……..
