So I am back with a little project post.
As I mentioned last week, I am a big lonely, loner all alone on a mountain top.
wild animals my kids.
So in order to keep my sanity (I use this term loosely), I have been crafting.
Well, really I don't consider myself a crafter.
I think that the word "crafter" brings to mind someone with a large collection of washi tape, colored paper, ribbon, and stamps.
I do not have any of these things.
What I do have are every kind of paint brush, sand paper, stain, and polyurethane, along with a rainbow of paints (both spray and liquid) and a "chick bag" of tools my dad lovingly assembled for me.
Oh and a hand sander that I asked for for Christmas.
So I don't know what that makes me.
A headache for my husband?
Anyway, he tolerantly expresses feigned interest as I plunge ahead with all my "projects."
And then he even pretends to like them when I am done.
So here is one of three I have been busying myself with this week.
It is a makeover project.
On my big a$$ clock.
And in order for you to truly appreciate the finished product, I must first show you what it looked like before I started.
I love a good before and after.
It is very satisfying.
|Naturally I selected the most flattering picture.|
What I love about it is it's size.
And starburst-like shape.
It wasn't really offensive before but I was kinda over the shabby-chic vibe.
And I have decided I don't like red.
So I decided to give it a more neutral look.
Which, in turn, will harmonize more with the direction I am taking my home décor (said as I take myself far too seriously.)
Could I sound any more like a looney?
Basically I wanted something with a little glam and a lot more versatility.
|p.s. Isn't the plush baby blue carpet fab? Not.|
I love the gold, the wood and the black.
I am a genius.
It only took me a year to finally stop fiddle-farting around and do it already.
I think it will be a lot more timeless.
Since it's a clock?
Clearly I need to go to bed.
Anyway, I will be back with pics of my other two little treasures once I am done.
Tell me, what do you think?
