So, as you can see...she started off going orange...an orange wash of paint so the grain can show thru..but..no. I didnt like it...Then I did solid orange all over and Mod Podged some paper I found that was sorta cool...it was orange and black and green and wow, that sounds ugly, but trust...it wasnt...UNTIL it was Mod Podged on this cabinet...then it was ugly. At this point Im so glad Im only out $10 bucks and am just done looking at her....but due to a promise I made myself (and maybe kinda to The Mister too) I cant have loads of massive furniture pieces laying around...1 or 2..maybe 3 at a time and (drag finger across neck) THAT'S IT!....So, I went looking for inspiration around my house and seeing as Im not a scrapbooker, I dont have pretty paper all over the place. Ive got looseleaf paper, computer paper and toilet paper..thats the 3 options folks...none of which would really work...THEN. THEN inspiration.... and bla bla bla bla..I transformed her into THIS:
I know..really!! It turned out waaay better than I ever thought! I mean, who the heck Mod Podges furniture with Wal*Mart tin foil?? Me apparently. The Mister and The Bunny seriously thought I had lost my mind..The Bunny even walked around the house mimiking a "Take me to your leader" one liner....but after layers of glaze and paint in greens and golds and blacks and greys...finished off with my navy-blue-purple-ish color on the inside of the cabinets...THEN antique and oh-so-patenia'd upolstery tacks from my chair re-do hammered into corners...she is *insert french accent here* Magnificent.
Now I try to find room around here for her. It was never my intention to keep her...but since Ive had her almost 2 months...put so.much.work. into her and styled her 3 different ways..we've bonded. Yaaarrrgggggkkkk....dammit. Alas, I cant. She is For *siiiighh* Sale
