Thank you so much to everyone for your sought-after suggestions about what color to paint my armoire (see post).
In the lead is the idea from Heather to paint it white and place pretty blue bottles on top (GASP!), so I am thinking of doing coats of watered-down white and then beginning a hunt for blue mason jars. I'm also pondering painting the inside the dreamy blue color, just to get it out of my system. I don't see this project happening until fall but am looking forward to it.
The other day I found an almost-full quart of aqua paint in the basement. I can't recall what the original intent was but suddenly found myself gathering up everything I could to paint.
Remember this once-red then-lilac chair? It didn't stand a chance of not being painted. As you can see, I even painted an emptied spice jar, now a vase! Nothing was safe.
Then in stolen bits of time I added decals ...
and added a "test" jar to my online shop, Tinkered Treasures ...
and then decoupaged an old hanger.
Still have a few painted odds and ends left to play with, too. Hope you're also finding a little time to play this summer!
