I started blogging on GET R DONE FRIDAY, and the past few Fridays have been a success! Barbara Jean at Treasures From the Heart was my inspiration, and so I continue with projects here today.
The project pictured here was actually completed on Thursday, so my MOM could "GET R DONE" and out of her house by FRIDAY! I helped her, and here's the story.

Mom agreed to help out one of the priests at her Church by repainting 2 of his angel statues that graced a shelf in his apartment. They were dark and dreary, and all he could think of was to spray them with white paint. Mom and I thought they would appear boring, so we put on our thinking caps and came up with a novel idea - - why not paint them white, put sage green over the top of the white, and accent with GOLD PAINT!!!! (where have you heard THIS before - I wonder ---could it be from the last 2 projects I posted on earlier Fridays???) We got busy with them, and this is how they turned out. They are holding pillars to place a candle on - pretty neat, huh? (The angel below was 'started' - you can see where we painted her white, and where the green and gold begin on the wings and the pedistal she holds.)As long as we had the spray paint, I nabbed mom's old mirror - she got it at a rummage sale during her 'early marriage' years, and it was gold - the original color. It looks to be a plaster molded design over a wood frame - pretty old. So, it got sprayed white, added the sage green, then the gold highlights...and VOILA! A whole new look for this tired old mirror!
Mom is going to hang it in her hobby room, I think - unless she changes her mind. It's a woman's prerogative, you know!

NEXT Friday - will be one of MY projects - and it won't be a green and gold highlighted one!

Oh I love that name: Get R done Friday!!!
If we new how to do the Mr Linky thing we could start our own Friday.
Not sure why the Friday Project is not going, and now wonder if i should be using that name at all.
Maybe there is some rule about that?

Your project (Or should I say your Mom's project) =0) looks great!! Thanks fro sharing that technique.

Thanks to for passing my name along as the instigator of getting weekly projects done.
It has really helping me since I started doing that.

Blessings, and thanks for adding sunshine to my days with your visits.
