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!
