Hi everyone, how is your week going so far?
Today I thought I'd share with you some of my latest projects that I've created for my Etsy shop.
I love birdcages, and was super excited when hubby brought me home this beauty!
This is one tall bird cage, standing at over 2 1/2'! It didn't begin looking like this, though! I'll show you the before in a second. I really love the arched top and cute little wood finials, too!
It even has a tray that slides out at the bottom, so it could be used for an actual birdcage.
Ok, here is the before!
It's amazing what a difference a little paint and tlc makes, don't you think?!
I love the cute little door at the front:)
I think it looks so much better in my signature creamy dreamy white!
Another favorite recent makeover is this pretty vintage wood corner shelf.
You should have seen what this puppy looked like when I first spotted her!
I just love the ornate cut work design.
This is another large piece, at over 3 1/2' tall.
Ok, are you ready for this?
Here is what the poor thing looked like when I discovered her hiding in a corner!
Yikes! Not only was she pretty dusty and dirty, but had probably the ugliest paint job I have ever seen!
What on earth were they thinking? Someone had spray painted her bright red, just randomly, so you could still see the white beneath. I am sure they thought they were being creative, but
what a hot mess!
After giving her a good bath, I couldn't wait for the transformation to begin!
I could almost hear her shouting
"thank you!!!!!" as I was painting her a nice creamy white!!
Oh so much better, I think!
Ok, I don't have a before shot to share with you for my next project, but I just had to share this pretty French cloche that I created!
After painting the wooden base, I then stenciled in dark midnight blue a gorgeous fleur de lis image.
Because what could be more French than that?
I then added a cute tag that I created from chipboard, as well as a copy of a vintage French book page and a fleur de lis image. Glittered, of course!
It was alot of fun to create!
Thanks for visiting today, now go out and find something to transform with a bit of paint and tlc!!
