Well, I took my 6 pieces that I had to sell to the The Simple Farm for the Barnsale today, and , oh my goodness, what an experience to see all the beautiful goods in person! I was speechless....(or ...it might have been the heat, I don't know.....it was something like 94 degrees out there!)
The farm is gorgeous, and a place worth visiting. Go check out their website here.
And, of course, the bloggers did not disappoint....I am going back tomorrow to take lots and lots of pictures.
The last piece I made was really one of my favorites....
I found this poor grandfather clock at Savers last week...
I liked the look of it, but the door was missing, and the clock did not work anymore.
I still had an idea of what I wanted to do with it...
I took the hinges off that was still left over from the door, filled in the holes with wood filler, and primed the whole thing . I did not use spray paint...aren't you proud of me?
Again, no plan, I just started with what I knew I wanted, and let the piece lead me.
The sides were painted lime green, and then taped off to be painted over with darker green.
Then I taped off over the darker green, in rows, to form diamonds, and painted over again with the same green.
Sounds complicated, but maybe you will get the picture by looking at the pictures! LOL.
The result was this diamond pattern..
Hubby helped me put some shelves in the place where the pendulum and chains used to hang.
We also put in a new battery operated clock mechanism.
I wrote "Take some Time" with old scrabble pieces at the top...
