So glad that you have all come for a visit. I have been steadily been busy doing some small projects around my little nest. I have really enjoyed decorating with shutters, doors, and windows. Especially those that have a great chippy patina.
If I can’t find the patina that I love on these items then I create it myself, and this is just what I did with these shutters that I showed you in a post a while back.
Here is a before picture of the two shutters that I created a new patina on.
Here is the after pictures. I couldn’t have ask for a better crackle and chippy look.
Here is the other side of the wall vignette.
I had a shelf that my son Nathan built for me many moons ago and it was perfect to go on top of my vintage screen that is lined with a lace curtain.
I have not liked anything that I have put up on this wall for the past 2 1/2 years and I finally feel like I have finally got it like I want , other than I am looking for a new picture to go into the antique frame. I have an idea of what I am going to do with it so I’ll be showing you that soon.
A picture with the entire wall.
A couple of terracotta angels that I painted white top off the vintage books. I love using old architecture as well, see the white book ends on each side.
A Joey flower with angel wings, sticks and pine cones add to the effect for texture.
Here is a sweet vignette that I made up with a Roman bust, antique alter candle stick, a little burlap and basket of flowers on a chippy old chest. (I get the candle stick holder in 2 weeks)!!!!!
I had two large white shutters that I used on each side of my primitive cupboard. It seems to finish off the wall.
Well that’s it for now. I hope that you all enjoy a lovely summer weekend where ever you are in this beautiful world. We are celebrating Pioneer Day in Utah on the 24th, so that should be fun. Until next time.
