I love how paint can transform something so easily and dramatically and inexpensively.
I whipped out some white paint that I had and in no time ended up with this
A reminder of what it looked like before
I had a little sample pot left over from some touch ups we made at our last rental house so I used that. I don't intend to use the board and dome for cheese or food of any kind so I wasn't concerned about the type of paint I used.
I wanted a shabby finish so I used a chux cloth to wipe on the paint and then wiped it off again after each coat. I ended up doing three coats of paint to get the finish I was after.
I managed to salvage the last few roses on our bushes before hubby pruned them.
What do you think? $4 for the board and dome and paint for free , leftover from a previous job.
I also had a go at making some material roses and I am pretty happy with the results
I had some denim offcuts lying around. I think there from a pair of Nicholas jeans that I had to hem up as they were too long and the fake pearls are from the flowers Nick buys me. The florist winds them around the bouquet and I always keep them just in case.
I tried a few different ways to make them and watched some tutorials on YouTube then just made it up as I went. What do you think. I quite like them. Now I need to find something to use them for.
