My friend Sharon and "Huntington House" partner was gifted with a curb side find. She was excited about the her new found treasure and emailed me this photo. She had already primed the discarded desk when she sent me this photo. This was going to be our latest treasure which would find it's new home at the Tea Party Castle. It didn't look like much, but I knew that Sharon would work her painting magic.
Did I mention that she is a gifted painter? After she had painted, we added the tulle skirt. The tulle had a wonderful shimmer to to. Once we got the tulle on, we knew it needed a bit more "BLING".
We added two large bows and for the BLING we added a large rhinestone in the center of the bow.
Can you ever use to many rhinestones? I don't think so.
Take a look at the wonderful painting.
Sharon said it only took her about an hour to do this!
I just love the soft pastel colors.
I think you know by now that my favorite color is PINK!
Here's a close up of all the detail painting. Visit Sharon's blog "Great Paint for Great Homes",
and see some of her other wonderful projects.
Remember the lamp re-do from my previous post?
Well now the girly lamp has found it's new home.
It is perched on top of the new desk at the Tea Party Castle.
The desk was also given a crystal drawer pull for some extra Bling! I think the lamp and the desk are a perfect pair. I enjoyed working with Sharon on another project. It's fun to work with someone who is so creative. Once you start working together it's amazing what you can create.
Well the weekend is here and there's lots of creative ideas to read about. I'll be linking up this creation at the following sites....Design-Aholic
