~SWEET TWO DRAWER CABINET~
I've been busy working over the past few days at base painting some sweet vintage finds!
You can find TIPS on painting your fabulous old finds
~THE LATEST CUBBY~
After all the sewing I told you about yesterday I'm ready to get back to my paint and brushes! Unlike sewing (which I'm happy to do most any time), I have to be in the MOOD to paint. Otherwise my roses come out looking like, um...something other than roses. I grabbed my camera AFTER I started removing the glossy finish on a couple of the pieces...that's why my latest finds look dusty and dirty. THEY ARE!
~THE LAST CUBBY PAINTED~
I was happy to snag another vintage wooden cubby like the one I showed you a couple of weeks back. This one is already sold so I was really happy to snag another one! They are made almost identical...only thing I can see that's different is the knob. This one is brass and the first one was a little ceramic cutie.
~GREAT METAL SIGNS~
I found six of these sweet metal signs at Goodwill. All of them had minor surface scratches so I assume that is why they were there. I LOVE imperfect stuff. Since I repaint the majority of the things I find it doesn't matter to me what kind of shape most are in! I used my hand sander to sand down the white lettering so it wouldn't show underneath the new coat of paint!
I've finished the artwork on several of these pieces and will take photos of them later this afternoon to share with you tomorrow. Some are going on my website, a couple on Etsy and even some on eBay!!!
~VINTAGE SHAVING MIRROR~
Can't wait to show you how this sweet old mirror came out! One of my favorite things to paint EVAH..........................
I'll be hiding out in my studio most of the day! It's so fun to get back to more of what I love!
Have a great Hump Day!
Love to you...
