Frenchy things – can’t get enough….

Get a load of this HUGE HUNK OF GAUDY GOLD !!!

Found it at the thrift store a few weeks back for $ 5.99

Had no idea where it was going to go….

Is it a crown or a shelf ?

As it sat awaiting for the Fairy Godmother to turn it into something wonderful – a corner was chipped off.

I stuffed it with newspaper and painted it ORB and you can’t tell – unless you look reaaaaaal close !

Anyway, I sat it on top of my Frenchy desk until I decided what to do with it….

After looking at it , I liked the crown on the shelf…what do you think ?

The ORB crown perfectly matches the handles on the desk , which happen to be ORB too !

Well she had already made hers over and I loved it ! She glazed hers and added a sparkly knob on top. Mine is very similar – but, I painted everything on top ORB and I used sandpaper to make it a bit rustic. I think Krista and I had the same creative eye on this one :o)

Kammy, great makeovers. Not sure what the second item is, but I love the way it turned out! Linda

I think it looks good on top of the cabinet. Nice redos!

Hi Kammy~ Love the scrolly piece you painted and added to the top of your desk hutch... it looks so great up there. I love the jar and lid and LOVE LOVE how you painted it. Thanks for sharing, and for your visit. Jenn

Yes, I saw the other canister transformation earlier this week and loved it! Love yours, too. So I guess there's a chance there are more out there! Love that other piece ~ I had something similar {two made of resin} in gold and believe it or not I got rid of them last year.

now that looks good. Gives it some more personality.. And fits the top perfectly.

They both look great! I especially love the crown, or whatever it is! :-)

Ha ha.. my word verification is groper. Weird...

Jennie said...

Wonderful!!! But will someone please tell me what ORB is? I keep seeing it mentioned and I'm totally in the dark!

I love how the scroll looks repainted on top of your hutch! Great bargains! Anita

Your rococo bracket was such a great find and it looks wonderful as you've reused it although usually they're gold. Do stop by and see our villa. Jane F.

Yours looks great! So fun turning something "scary" into something pretty! I love the other piece too! It looks beautiful. :)
