I've been working on fun projects for the farm. They are living in my other house until I get back up to there. I'm just waiting to get to the actual point of adding these little details once all the major painting is done. Anyway, a friend gave me an old brass lamp:
I spray painted it bronze and covered the shade in, you guessed it! burlap. I added a bead fringe and wrote favorite sayings about family, friends, and nature on the shade. I think it turned out nice. What do you think?
|Lit up makes the crystals sparkle.|
Next up was the miniature wire gate (it's about 14" high) that I made a little sign for. It is a board covered in yep, burlap, which I stenciled with the letter "B". I intend to put some vines on it and hang it on the front door.
Here it is with vines and berries added:
|Old fence pickets, large letters from Hobby Lobby, and fork and spoon from GoodWill.|
Darkened "T" - shows up better; it still has green showing through though. This is not the best picture but it gives you the idea:
|Can't really tell but there's a moose with the word "Maine" underneath it.|
Chose this because it reminded me of our New England trip.
That's it for now. My mind is busy imagining other projects for the house. I'll show them off as I create them. Thanks for stopping by!
