Another busy weekend…

7 Nov

How come when I finally decide to do something everything else around me decides its going to be more important than what I have planned? I guess such is life right? Despite many objections from the things around me I actually got 2 projects done this weekend!

See below for before & after pics:

I call this the Amoeba painting – really interesting right? LOL

Up next we have this beautiful wooden wall medallion. Loved the look before but not quite my style:

After a few coats of paint, some verathane and distressing this went from just pretty to PRETTY AWESOME – I am loving the metallic sheen it has:

    I like that you took a chance with color for this piece instead of black or white. It looks great!

    Your link at Fingerprints on the Fridge caught my eye. I love your medallion! What color did you use?

    Oh that medallion is SO COOL! The color you went with is perfect, and I’m sure this will look great on your wall for a long time! I would love it if you linked up to the Head to Head Showdown, going on right now at http://www.icantstopcrafting.blogspot.com
