Today I'd like to share with you a recent project that I made from wooden plaques that I picked up at the thrift shop. Glittered Parisian wall plaques. Oooh, la,la! But, they didn't begin life looking this good!
This is what they used to look like! As soon as I spotted them, I just knew that they deserved a new lease on life! I'm sure that the checkout people at the thrift shops always secretly wonder about me! I can just hear them thinking "that poor woman needs some serious help!" So, buh-bye cutsie little girl saying, so long, funny little frog!
After painting and distressing the plaques, I decoupaged some vintage sheet music to them, and added these gorgeous glittered vintage inspired French postcards.
Much better, no?
So there you have it! Just because something may look a bit tired, a bit sad or worn out, doesn't mean that it has to stay that way for long! Now go out and find something to transform!!
