Cherub & Candleabra Re-Do

Oh my's been SO long since I've actually finished a project! I'd almost forgotten what it was like to re-create something!! I found this awesome cherub statue while working at the thrift store yesterday.  It began as gold.......

 The after...a coat of white spray paint!

 After the first piece I began looking around for something else to transform. I've went so long without projects and now I'm looking for anything to paint. Another thrift store find. An old Home Interior piece. Originally I had thought about turning this in to a primitive piece as a gift. 

 I'm not sure I can part with it now! It has old world appeal!

 Thanks so much to Rosemary @! I'm in love with all of her projects! I asked her a thousand question about Gesso. Mind you this was a long, LONG, time ago! I stored the info and I love the antiqued finish. I also used a glaze. I have no idea why I'm so intimidated by glaze but baby steps I suppose!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. I prefer the old coat to the current. The old statue has the impressive and strange appearance.
