Re-do's of boo boos

Why would anyone think those old plaster, chalky statues and placques were pretty?
I so wished I had taken a before photo, but I just wasn't thinking that these were going to turn out so pretty!  Lesson learned.

Someone gave me a set of 'french looking' and I use that term loosely, gentleman and lady.
They were the chalky white with bright gold daubs and dabs of paint where they were trying to add an accent to make them look better.  NOT!
No wonder they went out of style.

Here's a photo of the re-do of the boo boos. 
I think they are quite fashionable now.  These sold the day I put them in my booth.
I'm loving these 'tiffany' blue items.  I don't know if it is an exact match of the beautiful Tiffany blue boxes and wrappings that you get at the store, but it's close, and actually it is a spray paint from Wal-Mart or your local big box stores that is called Blue Ocean Breeze.
Whatever, it makes old ugly things, turn into be-ute-ti-ful things.
I think they would be gorgeous hanging over a master bedroom suite....okay on the wall above the bed!  I'd hate for them to come crashing down during the night.  What the........?

Aren't they adorable!

I also added a few other items to go with them.
"Always Kiss Me Goodnight",
a shelf, that was a horrible bright gold, with those cute glass knobs, and a candlestick that turned out so cute.  If I were redecorating my bedroom right now, I would have like to keep these things, but ya know, you gotta make a little bit of money back.

I've got some other items, but I found them all in the old vintage green color and they are so calming.  I will post them later. 

Hope you are having a great week.

Leaving you in His care,
