Tied with writing and cupcake baking, I think painting and decoupaging furniture is my ultimate passion. Any piece of furniture can go from good to great with the right color paint, glaze, appliqué or decoupaged flowers or design added. I see a plain Jane piece of wooden furniture, and I am immediately inspired.
Here is a grouping I had done a year and a half or so ago for my little shop. (Please excuse the fact that I took the picture in my garage at my last house...)
These pieces were all thrifted finds, and they make an adorable statement, full of charm and quaintness. Mmm hmm, all it took was a bit of paint, glaze and some imagination.
I added the decoupaged flowers here and there and voila! Reinvented pieces ready to begin a whole new life in someone's home. Aah, soooo inspiring.
You can paint and decoupage accessories too, like the watering can above, or these vintage baby shoes, below...just think outside of that box, people.
Look around. What have you got around your home that needs a bit of rejuvenating?
