First up is a bench that I've been wanting to get done. I just polished up the frame and left it the way I found it, I had three of these Bakers Economalt bags, I sold two and kept this one for a future project. I really like how it turned out.
A trio of Angels~~~gold frame, gold angels~~~Oohlala~~~Now they are white!!!
The smaller ornate frame was made in Holland I just gave it and the large frame a wash of white and a bit of a rub off to show a little gold. All I had to do to the chalkboard was to tape it off and paint the chalkboard paint on to it and add a couple of hangers to the back.
And again white, white, white. The Lyre magazine/book holder is cast iron and was gold. The little victorian looking vase was brass...so much cuter in white. The heart and star box was a maroon red...Much better in romantic white. Two small oil on canvas of Blue Roses, the roses really bloom with these white frames.
And the little bird? Didn't do a thing except give him a bath, found him at the thrift store and he asked me tweetly if I would take him to live at my shop. He's a soft translucent yellow with hand painted roses in a soft peach.
And finally this adorable little magazine/night stand. I just applied the plaster roses from this post here. And distressed just the tiniest bit.
This was one of the stars of the Marathon Trilogy series that I only completed two segments of, here is the one where I painted everything white. I found that I could marathon sand, marathon paint, but not marathon finish all the pieces at once. You need to concentrate on each individual item...or all the fun is gone out of it.
~~~Happy Hunting and Gathering~~~
