Ok twice in one day...let alone with in hours...lol...I just snapped some of these photos and thought I'd share them...I've had some ask me to post some, so here are a couple until I can get our room totally organized so that I can take photos of it... Hugs again... Wall and border--the wall looks so much more warm and golden, than it looks here. I used a cream color background, then painted on a brown glaze with the funky roller. Then used a wet rag to rag off the top coat. The second color actually went on as a dark brown, so I have no clue how this color came out...lol...but it's so inviting, warm, sophisticated, and romantic...it was a lot of work, but well worth it. My new fishy...it's made out of marble and I just love it. It's really heavy too. And to think, Scott picked this out. So maybe it's his..lol...but really mine... These are candle sticks that I had in my kitchen that were actually once a bone white. When I figured out that I wanted to bring in red as an accent color into our bedroom, I thought I would change the colors of these. So I painted them with acrylic red paint. Then went over them with a burnt umber and wiped it off of the surface. I love the out come. looks like they were always this color. And I once had 3 pieces, but one ended up getting broke and just looked so out of place in the kitchen. I was just playing around with the candles lit against the wall. See what kind of things I do in the middle of the night...lol... This is my new vase I picked up today. I wasn't leaving the store without it...lol..It's actually the figure of the upper torse of a female body. This is made out of marble to. The filler are actuall bamboo in them until Scott buys me a dozen roses...lol... Here I was playing again with the candles. I love the soft glow this gives off. I stuck the candle behind the vase.
