Redo Numero 1:
You know those pumpkins they have at Hobby Lobby? The ones that are on sale now because Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is afoot?
Well, last year I noticed they had the monogrammed ones, but I never found the letter “P”. So I improvised this year.
I painted the whole thing with Old White Chalk Paint and then dark waxed it heavily so it would settle in the grooves and curly details. Then I got out some dark brown acrylic artist’s paint and an angled painter’s brush (from my painting classes years ago) and put my calligraphy skills to the test! I love the transformation! So much easier to decorate with white than with orange! After Halloween I’m over orange (for the most part)!
Redo Numero 2:
Just found that Ross started carrying birdcages!!! Extra exclamation points added there for my excitement! I have been looking for a cute shaped birdcage in my budget for a while, and this one at $10 was just what I wanted. Only problem, I hated the bronze color and those dorky birds affixed to the sides.
Solution? Pliars (any kind will do), sandpaper (to sand away sharp metal edges), and Oil-Rubbed Bronze spray paint!
SO cute, right? I’m in love! Much more authentic looking (until I can find the right estate sale!)!
