I found my new favorite color of spray paint... stone grey. So, I had some fun painting some different things lately. This was a cheap gold metal frame before I spray painted it. Then, I covered some cork tile (that slid perfectly in the slot in the back of the frame) in some grey wool fabric. Then I took some of these really cool vintage letters that are push pins (I think they may have been used to make small marquee signs.) I used "mi amor" (spanish for "my love") because that is what my father called my mother. I looked for a wedding photo of them, but I couldn't find one, so I used one of my grandparents.
Here is the before of the next project I completed:
This is the not same one, but this cuckoo clock is very similar to the one that I transformed.
Here is what it looks like now:
I painted it with a coat of Ralph Lauren's Dove Coat. I added chandelier crystals on place of the pine cones that are usually present. And then for the final touch:
I added this pewter heart from a vintage necklace. And, look closely and you will see a tiny thumb tack with the number 7 on it! Now the cuckoo doesn't actually work. I am planning on putting a clock mechanism in it, but I have to spray paint the hands black.
Okay, here is the last little project, and you are probably going to think it is silly!
I spray painted this old metal paint by number tray that Mr. Hughes brought home one day. No one ever even finished the painting but, I have always liked the shape... so I sprayed it stone grey. Then I got Mr. Hughes to print out my logo. I attached it to magnet paper and covered it with contact paper so it wouldn't ruin if it got wet. I threaded some ribbon through the handy little hanger already present on back of the tray. Then I put the whole tray on my flea market cart! I didn't complete this one until after we came home from the flea market. Can you believe we went twice this weekend? I will show you my treasures that followed me home later this week.
to come join me on Wednesday for my multiples party...
it will be lots of fun seeing what everyone buys lots of!
Okay...I am off to see what everyone else has made this week!
