In honour of sweet groundhog and his prediction ( what it will be, I wonder???) I put togehter a simple winter vignette on my piano.
1. Berry and pine cones pieces (sent by my friend Sue, from House Pretty, when I won the giveaway! see, Sue, recycling!!))
2. Cheap old books from the thrift store
3. Old birdie I found in my dusty basement (belonged to hubby..??!??) - please do not tell him, but I spray painted it white for the purposed of...of...well, for my purposes!! hahah
To make it less "Christmasy" and more "winterish" I wanted it white. Spray painting it did not work that well, as I wanted it totally white.
So the solution was to dip them in a container with white craft paint
Let to dry...
Now to the books...
I decided to "antique" and distress one of them...( I love distressing anything!) .
I may be doing the same to the other ones as well in the future, but for now only this one.
Simple steps: black paint first (but if you get a black book you won't need this step , I guess)
White craft paint
My old, very old and shabby book:)
And now to the vignette
The nice thing is, I intend to change it every season..different colours and a new vignette!
