Here she is after a coat of primer. Doesn't she look much better already?
I finished her up with an ivory spray paint and then mixed up some glaze and a mish-mash combo of acrylic paints: gold, burnt umber, black, got me started. I painted a little on and wiped it off until it looked good to my eye.
Now, what to do to decorate her shelf? Hmmmmm,....my last trip to the Bibles for Missions Thrift Store (which I have been incorrectly calling the Bible Mission Thrift Store, oops), I scored a couple of glass vases. I thought that might look nice but definitely would need some kind of filler.
My husband travels a lot for work and always brings me back these little Neutrogena soaps (really, I must have a hundred) so I wondered if I could combine the bargain vase with the soaps and come up with something. I added a piece of Christmas garland and voila:
Linking up here:
So cute! I love the white on white. You wouldn't guess that you put this together from thrift stores and hotel soap!!
What a great job you did! I probably would have been scared of it in the thrift shop! Beautiful!
I LOVE the soaps and garland together- the hits of gold are perfect for sparkle and bling! The angel cleaned up good! This corner of your bathroom looks fantastic!
Cute blog! I'll be back. I'm your newest follower.
P.S. Love the name!! ;-)
That garland is adorable with the soaps. I used to have a ton of hotel soap and ended up donating it to a woman's shelter....next time I have enough I'll try something like this. Very cute!
Thanks for sharing.
