If you have been visiting me for awhile, you know that I am in love with pedestals! Put anything up on a pedestal and it immediately looks better, don't you think?
Well, I am always hunting for vintage wooden pedestal bowls, and was super excited to discover one last weekend when we visited the Olympic Peninsula. Hey, a girl can't waste any thrifting opportunities, can she?
One of these days I need to get better about remembering to take "before" shots. At any rate, this was a dark finish, just begging for some paint and my decoupaging treatment!
Some cream paint, The Graphics Fairy, and vintage sheet music from my collection, and viola, a one of a kind vintage shabbylicious pedestal is born!
This jasmine French soap label has got to be one of my all time favorites from the Graphics Fairy (I think I say that about all of Karen's graphics!)
I guess you could say this is my "signature look", as I've created quite a few of these sheet music lined pedestal bowls. And the thought just occurred to me that I actually need to make one for myself, as all of the others I have sold!!
Here's one last look!
I may not be on here much for the next week or so, as my mom is on her way out here, as we speak! I am super excited, to say the least! Hubby took an early flight from Seattle this morning for home, and met my mom at the airport, so he could fly back with her. My mom is 84, and not as mobile as she used to be. To get her around is hard enough, let alone getting her thru an airport and on a plane to fly clear across the country! It will be her first time visiting Washington State. So, I plan on flying back with her when she returns, and staying for a few days. I am so looking forward to it, I'm really homesick and missing everyone!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
