hopefully enough to make it truly unique enough for someone to say " I've got to have this "
This isn't the first time I've done this either - I did it HERE and than again HERE - the striped one sold within 2 days of its remakeover - and someone is coming to look at the eiffel tower to use as a vanity in their bathroom.
So hopefully this will do it for this little number -
Remember THIS ? In case you don't feel like looking at the link - this is what I'm referring to
and though I did a little distressing -
It just seemed to be lacking a little something something
And now she looks like this
I added numbers -
and layered 3 more colors on top of the Paris Grey - I added a wash of French Linen -
then dry brushed Paloma - and finished with a dry brushing of Old White - the French Linen
" dirtied " it nicely I think
|close up of the layered colors|
So what do you think? Am I going to have to makeover my makeover of a makeover?
Ok so here's where the hilarity comes in ( once again ) I made the pom pom's for staging - but the
colors are all wrong - anyway I couldn't sleep and had to do something so whipped these up while
They should have been all white - but what the hell - they're kind of fun and I actually love the Tiffany Blue
and hung them from the curtain rod as a backdrop for the vanity - and then off I go to bed
thinking I would just take them down in the morning.
John wakes up very early in the morning to go for a pee - around 3 a.m. and I hear him standing outside the bedroom door for a lonnnngggg time - here's what follows next.....................
John says: What the hell is hanging from the living room window?
Suzan says: Pom Poms
John says: I know that but what are they doing hanging from the living room window?
Suzan says: I think they look nice - I'm going to use them as window treatments
John says: NO. YOU'RE. NOT
Suzan says: YES, ACTUALLY I AM - they're all the rage John, all my blogger friends are doing
this - I think it's fun - and actually top designers are saying this is a fast easy cost effective solution
to window treatments..................
John says: I don't give a damn what top designers say - It looks like a ^&%*& clown's house
Suzan says: Gawd - you so don't know style
John says: Really Suzan? I think something's happened to you since you started blogging - you used to have great taste
Suzan says: I'm evolving John - now let me get some sleep - please
John says: THEY ARE NOT STAYING SUZAN - THAT'S IT -
Suzan says: Is that your final word?
John says: Yep - Good God the neighbours are going to see them hanging from the window in the morning you know, I can't believe this.
Suzan says: Good night John
John says: Good night Sue ZANNE - ( that's what he calls me when he's really mad at me lol )
I am telling you moments like this can keep me going for a week - I am laughing as I type this -
He just makes it too damn easy................
Anybody want some pom poms lol?
