My morning cup of coffee and I had settled deep into perusing through Craigs List when I came across this old victrola cabinet. The feminine curvy lines of it spoke to me...I knew I could do something fabulous with her. Later that afternoon she was in the back seat of my Honda Accord and on her way to becoming something beautiful.
I decided to paint her a turquoise color from the "oops" paint section...I really love the lines of an old piece mixed with a new fun color. I distressed, aged and waxed her. I needed to remedy the gaping hole in the top where the victrola used to be so I covered a piece of wood cut to fit with a paisley fabric. I also covered the sides of the piece in turquoise and brown paisley after I painted it and added trim.
Ta da, this is how she turned out. I added a mirror to the lid and there was already a little cubby there (maybe for needles originally?) that I thought would be great for jewelry. The cupboards can hold all the gear that us girls come with. It turned out better than I could have ever hoped for.
Welcome to my blog! As far back as I can remember I have dabbled in a little bit of everything creative. You name it; painting, sewing, home decor, etc. I love it all! I especially love mixed media...a little of this and a little of that assembled into something totally unique. Some of the greatest finds come from the most unlikely places.
