I am really excited to share this little makeover with you all today! Take Exhibit A. She is a plain jane, old and boring hope chest. Notice her great bones? Well, I saw them too and was not a bit put off by her homely appearance. I saw the potential for cuteness immediately. So, it was time for her makeover. I had several ideas for her that I had been pondering, but I found that once I got painting and working, that my vision changed. In fact, often times I begin to sand and paint and then my creative process begins to flow. That’s what happened with this gal. I formulate ideas as I work and the piece evolves. When I got her she
looked like this:
In this picture, she is sitting on top of a little dresser.
And I apologize also about the picture quality…my basement is quite dark!
Well, my vision paid off and here she is today:
Her name is PEARL.
I am sure it is obvious why.
Pearl was well-received at the Blessed Nest show this past weekend and she was SOLD today!
She’s headed to her new home Wednesday!
That Pearl is one lucky girl.
