Now if painting nice wood finishes makes you squirmy and turn blue, then look away. But for the less faint of heart.... let's see what she turned this piece in to:
And if you ask her how she achieved this finish, I can almost guarantee she'll say something like this: "Oh I just threw a bunch of paint colors together I had on hand and slopped them on like this, and like so, and wa la! Easy as pie!"
So now take your eyes off of the storage cabinet filled with wonderful garage sale toys for her grandkids and my kids and random kids to play with and look up to the "REDEEMED" Sign. Can anyone guess what it was in it's previous life? Three cheers and a knuckle punch if you guessed one of those cheapy full size mirrors. Yes, Marie is the queen of upcycling. She thoroughly explained to me how she did it, and if I could remember I would totally give you a tutorial. But I'm old and forgetful with a slight touch of ADD and can't remember. (Hey, it was like two months ago that I took these photos and she gave me the low down. Have mercy on me!)
Knowing Marie, by the time this blog post goes live, she will have painted this a different color and/or moved it to a totally new location in her house. She's like that. She must have a touch of ADD, too. She claims it's her husband with the disorder... but all of us who know Marie and her home decor know that "it takes one to know one." :)
Thanks, Marie, for letting me share some more of your fabulous work today!
Thanks for stopping by!
