Let Things Marinate 

Some times I will paint or redecorate and I won’t be crazy about the look.  When this happens, I sometimes give it time to marinate.  I will live with it for a little while and see if “it grows on me”.

This little sculpture has a couple and three little ones so for obvious reasons I love it.  But I didn’t love its original color.  It wasn’t an expensive piece so I had no problems repainting and distressing it.

I am not sure if I like the outcome so I’ve placed it in its spot and wait. 

I got this bowl when I got married.  The bronze look is no longer to my liking sooo Heirloom White came to the rescue.

I’m not sure what I don’t like about this.  Is it the placement?  Is it the ceramic balls in the bowl?  Is it too delicate of a piece with the "manly" trunk and ship's wheel?  But I’m letting it sit tight for the moment.

These candlesticks also took a coat of the white.  These I like!  I have a GREAT spot for them.  Check in later this week for my best freebie find to date!

As far as the ones I didn’t like, I will keep you posted on their status. Pin It
