A few other recent projects
This is a table I repainted. It was once a telephone table. Now, it's just a fun little end table since everyone keeps their phones in their purse these days!
I made some Halloween decorations from yucky, kitschy knick-knacks purchased at Goodwill (love that place!) A little paint, some glitter and spiderwebs...voila! Instant creepy cute!
Cats, owls, birds and a rose candlestick are all in this pic.
I decided to make Halloween art, so I used a thrift store picture frame to hold pics of classic horror film creatures. I dirtied the glass with some brown paint and cobwebs to add to the creepy factor.
Last, but not least, I have started painting shoes. Don't ask why.
The answer is because they are a cheap canvas, thanks to Goodwill.
Baby tennis shoes
These were bridesmaid's shoes...the dreadful dyed to match the dress kind.
Glitter paints embellished the top, but the heels are covered in seed beads.
All of these items are now in my Etsy shop.
