Tantalizing Turquoise French Provincial

We found this old little French Provincial vanity/desk on craigslist.
I couldn't wait to take it home and begin my therapeutic relaxation session
with paint.
It was old ... it was vintage.... it was dingy yellow and
it had a little girl's graffiti all over it.
You know what time it is???
It's Prime time!!
Turquoise is the happiest color ever!!!
We all have a color that makes us happy, right?
There are so many happy turquoise colors ,
It was hard to choose from but this made me the happiest.
I couldn't find a zebra stencil large enough so...
I made my own zebra stripe design with frog tape.
Ribbet....
I then detailed in gold metallic and purchased some black and white pulls.
You can't see from the pictures but I glazed the whole thing in a
faux effects gold metallic. I glistened in the sun.
I put the last finishing touch .... Love
I hope there is a little girl out there enjoying it, or a mom, or guy.
As long as it brings happiness.







The many faces of art

Do you have a teenager who is always bored ?????
I used to tell my daughter I was going to hire a full time clown
just to keep her entertained.
So I gave her a camera instead
It's amazing to see her perspective from the eye of a camera.
