Welcome! Today I will be sharing some of my wonderful Romantic Finds that I have repurposed and will be adding to my shop
or not! lol
I found these great mirrors at my favorite antiques store here in Bountiful Utah USA, Lost and Found Thrift. The mirrors are very sturdy and heavy, they had the reddish color stain on them that so many antique pieces have and it will bleed through if you don’t use a blocker before you paint on your initial color.
I used Vintage Market paint blocker that works perfect, one coat of the blocker then two coats of Cotton by Vintage Market paint. I then rubbed on white wax to seal it and bring out a lovely luster. They turned out just perfect.
I fell in love with this sweet old sepia picture of a mother and her babe. The patina on the picture is incredible.
Here is a wonderful antique frame and water color that I found and knew it had to come home with me. I am changing out some of my art and putting it in my shop and thought that this would be the perfect picture. The patina on it is lovely as is so I won’t be repurposing the frame.
I finally found the perfect piece to my puzzle with this great rod iron piece above the mirror on the fireplace. I have been looking for an architectural piece that was just the right size to go there. I painted it white then added some antiquing glaze. Many times if the piece doesn’t have the right patina on it that I like I just recreate it myself. Sometimes it takes a while to finish my puzzles but it’s worth the wait no matter how small.
The old dress form and old desk drawer are some of my newest projects that I will share soon. I have some really fun ideas for these two pieces. I will give you a clue on how I am going to repurpose them, it has to do with old books.
What would you do to repurpose these items for your home?
