Let's talk about some plans for this
I probably having you scratching your head over that trophy, huh? It is probably my favorite item in the pile. I don't even plan on polishing it. I love the patina! I found it in a local junk shop and got really excited because I thought it was a vintage equestrian silver cup....THOUGHT...not exactly, it is...wait for it...a bowling trophy! LOL! Not quite as cool, but I love it nonetheless. I have been using it as a vase.
Next are the three terra-cotta pots. Cute as they are, but I have already revamped them and made them a tad more interesting. I gave them a coat of chalk-board paint (are you getting tired of the chalkboard paint yet? Me either!) Then, with a piece of chalk numbered the pots. The grand finale - I added FAUX topiaries (because you know I don't do the real thing) that I picked up at Michaels for $3.50 each!
The chippy wooden frame is being added to my frame collection and saved for a future project. More to come on that! It already got a good scrub down and coat of cream paint.
My final treasure is the set of needlepoint wall art. I like needlepoint, don't get me wrong, but it usually isn't something on my radar. However, I fell in love with this darling little girl and boy. The girl is holding a kitten and the boy, a puppy. The colors are soft and sweet. I couldn't help but picture this set in a nursery.
However, the frames are gross. The faux cherry wood is too dark and there are a couple of chips in the wood. I was thinking about cleaning them up and patching the chips with wood filler, but honestly, I'm just not in the mood. So, I saw these little bunny pillows online and decided to turn the needlepoint set into similar pillows for MW's nursery.
