I simply cannot thank you all enough for your words of encouragement and support. It has brought such pleasure to me to be able to stitch and share my crafts.
You might remember this awful pink that was supposed to be beautiful but turned out more 1988 mauve than I hoped.
No better time than "Where Blogger's Create 2012" to turn this piece back into the treasure it was. With that in mind I settled between Romaine or Butter Up.
Butter Up won me over.
Pardon the reflection of the cleanest floor around?
Painted that puppy right over the pink (I do love my chalk paint) and gently sanded to reveal the original pecan and peaks of pink.
But the doors just had me stumped again. Sprawled on the floor with my book collection I found my go to Bumper Book. Such great illustrations. These two number pages immediately caught my eye.
Perfection at last.
While the paint brush was out (yes, I am dangerous) a nearby footstool got a face lift and a decal. You can just see the pink alcohol ink over spray. It is not just for scrap booking...right?
I have absolutely the worst lighting in my studio. No matter how many lamps, lights or bulbs I try the glare, color or film always causes photo issues...but it doesn't stop me from sewing.
