Thought I would give you a progress report photo on the metal piece. THANKS HELEN for saying put mirror in it. I was thinking it might be a frame. I thought wrong, I guess! Love it as a mirror!
Here is what it looked like before two different colors of spray paint, gesso, and several applications of Ranger Vintaj Metal Patina paint.
My new favorite thing, are these glazes...and playing with metal.
It is still just a work in progress as I really want to add some flowers...which I still have not found yet. Bring on the shopping!
Good thing we are visiting our old stomping ground this week where those things are right around the corner.
We are in Corning NY, which is for sure a fun destination for anyone included to learn all about the history of glass.
And then there is the matter of getting the mirror nice and clean too and some hangers for the back. Just might HAVE to keep this project...
What do you think so far?
Here is a close up so you can see all the various shades and the little itty bitty little metal pieces I made to cover existing screw holes. Aren't they adorable?
I might be in love...but it's the green patina....
Hope your Monday is going well and you are getting a lot of things accomplished!
