So, if anyone was wondering what I have been doing the past few weeks while recuperating. Here is the story....
Once I felt good enough to get up and around, I was very limited in what I could and couldn't do.
My dear hubby set up a wagon in the driveway. He would put a chair out next to the wagon in the driveway.
He would pick a piece in the morning and put it up on the wagon.
If I felt up to it, my daughter and I would go outside a little everyday and we would sit and paint.
What I couldn't reach from where I sat, my daughter would take over and paint.
She has become a very good painter! (and a very good helper!)
My son would help us by moving the wagon around with the 4 wheeler.
This was the only way I kept from going stir crazy!
We have a whole barn full of yard sale junk we have accumulated over the years.
This one started real ugly, broken and wobbly.
But you have to look beyond the ugliness.
When I brought this home this spring, my husband was like "what did you pay for that?!?"
But I thought she had pretty lines. Pretty legs. Nothing that a few coats of paint can't solve!
I used my french grey paint and some glaze on her.
Again the importance of jewelry. I put a great big crackle ceramic knob on this piece to be a focal point.
I think the knob makes this piece!
