A Few Finished Projects....and More Goodies!
I found the top one at a yard sale some time ago but the matting and the frame were not so much me. I took it all apart this morning and used a light stain to give the mat a hint of color and I rubbed the frame with black I love black in furniture, art...just about anyway you can use it!
The bottom are a pair of very sweet postcards I purchased from Berna Dean at Vintage Chic downtown Dothan, Al and have had them for a while also. A couple of weeks back I found this black double frame at another yard sale but again the very white Mat left me cold!! So I took the same stain and really drenched the bottom mat, and lightly rubbed the top. When it is all put together...I Love It! I love the aged look, the distressed feel. I think it works well in the black frame and now the Sweet Birds are the Focus...I am happy!!
I have a few before and after photos of some finished furniture and a few photos from the always full storage unit. I am working on furniture this week so if you see something before I work on it...give me a call. Or if you something that is finished....
Added some cute little feet and sanded it to prepare it for paint but I noticed the wood is so pretty so...I just oiled it and painted the hardware black.
So I sanded it again to shabby it and put a light mahogany glaze on it and now it has almost a pink tint. Not really but, really cute.
See? Just a hint!
Now it needs to rest beside your bed or nestle next to your favorite reading chair. $15
This bench had been mistreated....abused. Someone tried to stain over paint....it needed help.
