An office facelift- some redecorating and remember these?
from my previous post here? And, how I turned ’em into this?
When I bought those, I also got three of these square plaques.
They’re fourteen inches and have lots of detail.
I don’t know what they were originally used for or what purpose they served. They’re made of the same material (resin) and I wasn’t sure what I would do with them.
That was until, I was thinking of what to place on my wall in my new office and I needed wall decor for a facelift appeal. I reached into my pile of “future projects” & pulled two of them out and started to paint…
Took me all of an hour just about. Started with a little base coating with a parchment white and added aqua and brown touches throughout. Wanted to get an antiqued finish on them and various color for character.
The antiquing around some of the edges really defined the piece. Once dry, I applied a coat of sealant and they were done. A quick and easy project!
I anchored them on each side of my awesome clock and added a small quote plaque in the center.
Gotta admit my space is looking pretty sweet and inviting.
Now if I only had time to paint the walls! They would surely “pop”! In the meantime, I’ll enjoy the warmth and coziness of it all. It’s a definite improvement and the fact that I did this wall project in very little time and money—that’s the best part! I love projects like this.
Hoping you have a blessed weekend. This week if time allows, I will be posting a review on a cool little gadget to make meals more appealing and creative and much more, so stay tuned. Until then, ciao~
