Give me an S!
I don't think you can tell from the first picture but the glass is like a dome or a bubble, very cool!
Don't pay attention to the dirt, just trying to get a picture so that you can see the bubble.
I finally decided what I was going to do, frame some fabric, but didn't know what else I could do besides that. I found this remnant, perfect for my house decor. I went to Hob Lob, the world's greatest store!!!! I looked around for something to add to the inside, saw lots of possibilities and thought of some things I could use at home and so I didn't buy anything. I decided to come home and play with it.
I painted the frame with spray paint, Oil Rubbed Bronze, love that stuff, but I added a little bit of Dazzling Metalics, Rich Espresso by DecoArt to give some definition to the frame. I just lightly rubbed it on with an old t-shirt.
I wasn't happy with anything I had at home, but I got an idea and ran back to the store to get exactly what I needed to put in the center.
I am so happy how this turned out, I just LOVe it! I am going to hang it in my entry hallway. I love how even tho it's an old piece it looks fresh and new and I think the "S" I picked out is a little more modern. I painted it with Oil Rubbed Bronze also. The colors aren't quite showing up here, there is a bit of a camel color, a little more yellow than is showing in the picture. Anyway here is a sneak peak at my next project, I hope to get it done this weekend. This blogging stuff is good for my "to do" list.
