I had been debating whether or not I wanted to fill in the chippy spots on this picture I purchased at the Goodwill with some black paint or leave it be.
I had originally thought that it had a sort of old, vintage, worn feel to it, but,
the more I looked at it and especially after seeing the pictures
of it on my blog, I thought,
it doesn't look good at all!!!
So I knew that I wanted to touch it up with paint.
There's still some chips here and there and it's not perfect by any means,
but, that's exactly why I like it!
I changed the background paper too. It's from my stash here at home, I'm sure it will be changed again though.
I felt it really needed a burst of color. Since it will be housed in my bookcase which is darker wood, it looked way too washed out with such a light background.
This little vignette is sitting on another Goodwill find. A big heavy thick wood tray. I love it. When I first saw it, I immediately thought I would paint it white, add a graphic and make it into a lazy suzan for my kitchen table.
Now, I'm not so sure.
I found these little leather bound books at Half Price Books. I love to collect old leather books! I was going to use them for a project that I will post about soon, but they didn't work out, so......they will stay with me for now!
Again, thank you for your comments and for stopping by,
