As hard as I tried not to, I ended up with a few projects on my to-do list for the upcoming vintage sale on July 30th, A Vintage Gathering, where I’ll be a NEWBIE vendor.
What can I say? I like to paint things.
And I’d like to point out that I have recently completed 3.5 items on my crafty to-do list from 2009.
I'm ON FIRE.
(Item 9 on the list regarding the de-stash of vintage fabrics may have taken just a tiny step backward this past weekend...)
This current project is also a test for a larger project I have planned for an old bookcase my newlywed parents purchased back in the 1940’s, b.c.*
somewhere deep in the bowels of the Garage Where Cars Can't Park
Yes, it’s currently painted post-it note lavender and no, I don’t want to talk about it. :-)
This rough-around-the-edges-with-stylish-metallic-gold-spray-painted-background-shadow-box came from a local thrift shop.
Primer + paint + mod podge + vintage wallpaper. And a little sanding to bring out the details.
A bit more painting and then it's put back together.
So far, so good.
Add a few vintage doodads and we’re done!
Earlier this year when I took my vintage roadtrip, I purchased a roll of that vintage wallpaper with the idea that I would line the inside of the bookcase with it. Once the bookcase is no longer lavender, that is.
Good thing I like to paint things.
