On Thanksgiving the local theatre was having a $5 any movie, any time special. So my two boys and I went to see the new Twilight movie "New Moon". GREAT movie......I felt like a teenager, that Edward is so scrumptious! I'm definitely for Team Edward :) My kids are all into the Twilight series and have read all the books. I'm a little behind, I just watched the first Twilight movie the day before Thanksgiving, now I can hardly wait for the next movie in the series! LOL
This weekend I was working on some transformations. The vintage dresser I picked up about a month ago at a great price, but with the opening of the shop, I hadn't had time to redo her. I LOVE all of her curves, she is definitely a girlie girl. After removing about a 1000 years worth of paint, dirt and grime....she was ready for a new dress. I knew she would love blue, so I painted her with Kelly Moore's "Simply Heaven". And I think she looks heavenly :)
We couldn't have her perfectly shiny and new (considering her age) so she received a little bit of distressing. And of course some new baubles. She originally had glass knobs, but I thought white porcelain would look better with her new shade of blue. I think she looks lovely and is ready for her close up at the shop :) Of course there is a little part of me that doesn't want to let her go, she has captured my heart with her new smile.....
This was originally an ugly picture in a gold frame that I had picked up at the thrift store. I knew I wanted to make her into a more useful object and of course turned her into a chalkboard. A lovely coat of Heirloom White then replaced the ugly picture with a new blackboard and Voila!! Another new piece to take to the shop.
A close up of her detail. I think she looks so much better. Trust me, it's a big improvement. (Again, I forgot to take before pics, sorry)
