For some, it's retail therapy. For me, it's paint therapy! On a typical day, you will find me creating in my work room, happily painting away! And yes, it truly is my therapy! Of course, half the fun is seeking out the gaudy, the drab, and the dull, that can be transformed with a little tlc. So today I thought I'd share with you a few of my latest projects, all of which began life looking rather, well, drab!!
Isn't aqua one of the cheeriest colors ever? I think so! I thought it would be perfect for this vintage wooden organizer box that I found last week in a dark & dusty thrift shop.
Some distressing in all the right places, and ooh, la, la!!
At the same thrift shop, I found this jewelry organizer. I didn't realize it, but several of you told me that actually the intended purpose (back in the 70's!) was to hold measuring spoons & cups. Now painted a pretty shade of turquoise, I think it's perfect repurposed as a jewelry holder!
And this is what they began life as. I guess the dirt & dust were free!!
I'm always searching for pretty picture frames that I can paint, collections of frames are one of my most popular items in my Etsy shop. I forgot to take a before photo of the frames below, but I am thrilled with their makeover!
Painted a pretty pale pink, I think they now are absolutely shabbyliscious!!
Wouldn't they be cute in a little girl's room, or a nursery?
That's it for today, I've got more painting to do!! Hope that maybe I've inspired you to get busy and paint something!
