Thanks for pointing this out, how silly of me to pass up those great pieces that have an 'outdated' color going on!

I am sure he "rules the roost" sitting atop the 'frig with the cook
Can't wait to see the bedroom are just teasing us with this waiting, but the suspense is going to be worth the waiting, I know!!
Happy Hump Day, sweet friend ....Hugs, Yasmin

NanaDiana said...

SOOOO much better. There for a second when I saw that first picture I thought you had taken leave of all your senses because I just KNEW that did not belong in YOUR home! He is darling now. Did you ever get your kitchen finished? If you did a post on it I think I missed it...or did it get put on the back burner with school and all that you have going on?

Love YOU to the moon and back! xo Diana

love and hugs,

Hi Rebecca
I much prefer the rooster in his newly feathered condition.
Male birds always have the bright and flashy colours, why should this fellow strutting his stuff be any different?

Gail said...

Thanks for the reminder to paint whatever I otherwise like so that I like it exactly. I had a urn with great lines but was "groovy 1970s orange" - thanks to your inspiration, it is not aqua.

Atelier de Charo said...

Awesome, great transformation!

Big hugs

Love the Rooster make-over. I can imagine he looks great on the refrig and next to the cookbooks... He looks very regal.
I am having a big Gift/Craft Show in mid October and busy creating. I only do one of a kind and I am having so very much fun.......

Have a fun weekend.
