Paint it Black!

Hello Everybody!

Today it is my turn at the Unique Laser Designs Blog, and I have a refurbished project to show you today.

I bought this mail sorter at a garage sale.  It's nice like it is...


But it is so much better in black!


You can order Happy Birthday from the online store but the other two were custom made.  But I couldn't stop this project here.  Each side is decorated also.

Here I painted daisies and a heart.  I glue all of the pieces on with gloss gel medium by Liquitex.  The flowes here remind me of mums.  Yay fall!


Here is the other side.  I used a watering can and chubby daisies (with one regular daisy).  The water drops are from Recollections (similar to Robin's Nest).


Here is a closeup of the water can.  I painted it red and used my finger to apply Star Dust Stickles to it.


Here is a closeup of the flowers being watered.  I used rhinestones and ric rac to complete them.


I am submitting this project to the challenge going on at Lessology: challenge #41 Beautiful Scenery.  The side with the watering can watering flowers creates a nice scene. :)

Thank you for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by the Unique Laser Designs store to check out all of the wood embellishments!  

Until next time my friends...just paint it black! ;)
