Ready for another confession? This is the 4th time I have painted them! There I said it, four times, wanna know the colors I painted them before I finally~finally settled on this color? Okay, first was silver, hated it not shiny enough, then here comes the gold, so WRONG, I thought awh black will be perfect then hubby comes home and says I think they will look better brown~
I bought the art at Hobby Lobby, it was originally marked $159.99 I paid $32.00 for it because the glass was broken and some of the panels were off. I needed a large piece of art for the living room so I thought I like it without the glass & I know I can replace the panels with a little hot glue. I paired all of this with some small frames I also bought at Hobby Lobby for $24.00 for the pair. I had these hung in the little space between the panels we have framed in our room, they were the perfect fit. I had them hung for about 4 years without anything in them, it drove my husband crazy. I do not know why it had not occurred to me before yesterday, but I remembered I had some cool Fleur-De-Lis mini Christmas ornaments so I tore the hangers off and glued them to the frame I was not able to remove the glass they were just glued in really really well so I just glued them straight onto the glass. I have to tell you a funny story about the backing on each little frame. The bright yellow was a piece of ribbon I had as was the red, the taupe color was a pair of undies (that was the funny part) (Smiling?) and the green was an old tee. Wow so many confessions in one post!
I love the way they turned out so colorful and they add just the right amount of color.
Here is the little vignette I have with the lamps. I also bought the hurricane lamp at Hobby Lobby for $3.00 because it was broken thank God the broken piece was still with it so it was an easy fix, the mirrored vase was another Hobby Lobby purchase, I can't remember how much it was but I am sure not over $10.00. The hearts were part of my beautiful mommy's collection that I happened to give her, they mean so much to me two of them are Nambe, something she & I loved and collected.
I realized something tonight as I was posting. I REALLY need to get better at my picture taking abilities. I will work on that I PROMISE~
Thank You & Many Blessings~
