If you have been following along, yesterday I was working on 'dipping' something as this technique seems to be my new love. I was sure there was something in my house that I could 'dip' so I no longer had to just admire this look online but could have a little of its loveliness right here at home.
I have been working on a huge house and yard fall clean-up list this week so have been refraining from any 'projects'. I decided it was time for a little break and this would give me my 'quick fix'.
These vases sitting on the shelf in our 'water closet' were definitely in need of a little life.
A little measuring,
A little taping,
A little spraying,
But wait, still fairly lifeless. In hind sight I should have chose a color to spray the vases rather than a silver metallic. My options were pretty limited though, as I only had white, black, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and silver on hand and I wanted to do them TODAY!!! (or yesterday). So silver it was.
This corner still needed some help though so off I went on a little tour to see what I could find to add some more dimension. The box of leftover twigs from my twig wreath was the first thing I came across. I sprayed a couple branches with my Oil Rubbed Bronze paint (they needed to be a little darker so one quick coat gave me the color I wanted but still left all the natural goodness showing). Although a little better, still not quite enough. I then stumbled upon some pallet wood cut-offs from another project. Sanded them. Glued them together. Put a coat of polyurethane on.
I love wood.
Needless to say, I never crossed one item off my fall clean-up list. So much for just a 'quick fix'.
