I moved a few things about this past weekend to bring some Spring touches to the house.
Added this small oil painting to the mantel......
.............changed out the previous lamp base to this thrift shop find which I really like. It's heavy and aged, perhaps solid brass but definitely not shiny which is how I like it. Made the lampshade many years ago. Framed piece of French floral tapestry, especially love the unusual shaped mat.
I don't do much decorating for Easter..............other than my always cheerful rabbits, this pair are on the dining room table. Every year, when I pull out the box from the attic and unpack them, I feel Spring is truly here!
Thanks to all who gave me recommendations on small electric sanders - I'll be buying one this week. Besides my own kitchen table to refinish, I'm painting some small furniture items to sell in my booth at SuzAnna's Antiques. Distressing and aging with bits of sandpaper is not fun, I need to hit those edges with more power!
- Heritage White Paint
- Tack Cloth
- Rubber Gloves
- Painter's Drop Cloth
- Sunny, wind free day
- Azaleas and dogwood blossoms all around............let's have some fun with old brown furniture!
