quick makeover projects
Yes, Quickies are back!

I have been working hard to complete unfinished projects left and right.

Also up and down and side to side and every which way.

Remember my  found-that-way Jack O'Lantern buckets?

Well, they have outlived their purpose.

It took two coats to cover all that orange with a nice burgundy.

Grabbed this cute image of foxes sledding on a log from The Graphics Fairy.

Mod Podged.


And added the two foxy buckets  to a Christmas vignette in the booth.

Gold candle sconces.

Now Navajo White.

A very old luggage rack with a missing strap. 

The remaining one dry-rotted.

I loved the color - a pinkish tan with a crackled finish.

Just needed cleaning.

Stapled on new green and tan jute webbing.

Buckets?  Done!

Sconces?  Done!

Luggage rack?  Done!

Back to work.

See y'all!
