I've always wanted to silver leaf a piece of furniture but haven't got around to it - back in the day I did a few ornate frames but furniture seemed to be a little overwhelming - after visiting a friend on the weekend and seeing this ( I SO want this piece ) it's made me ( somewhat ) determined to give this a try in the not so distant future.............
What do you think ( this one's pretty elaborate - I couldn't do the artwork on it )
I've never been into anything Chinoiserie - but for some reason I'm incredibly intrigued by it - this is such a perfect example of it, no?
Check out her headboard !!!
I could so see this becoming a new obsession if I did one piece - I'd probably end up gold leafing the house
( wouldn't an accent wall be spectacular - maybe I'll do it to the plank wall LMHO )
We didn't end up finishing the plank wall btw - an emergency came up - such as the kids arrived at the back fence to spend the day by the pool - and we couldn't very well excuse ourselves and take the hour it would have taken to actually finish what we started - because that would have just been plain rude, don't you think?
And I spent 4 hours at the hairdressers on Saturday getting my hair streaked and cut - I love my hairdresser and I've missed her soooo much - ( so did my hair )
I'll show you a photo but I had to do a little photoshopping because..........................
every time I see a photo of myself I see a cantelope growing where my nose used to be - seriously - I'm starting to look like Karl Maldon - remember him?
He was such a great actor - with a horrible nose
and I can only say that because we have a lot in common
I'm a great actress ( I really am ! ) with a horrible nose
If anyone has photo's of themselves that they'd like me to photoshop for them - drop me a line - I'd be more than happy to help you out - because I get it - I can photo shop any part of your face but I definitely specialize in noses.
( my hair looked great for one night - it was straightened - then I jumped in the pool ) good-bye silken locks..............hello bleached straw ) but I have bangs again - forehead wrinkles be gone !!! ) I may let them grow long enough to cover my nose now that I think of it.
I'll be partying with these fabulous ladies !
