I'm afraid I'm the sort of gal who can never leave well enough alone. (O:
Anytime I find something I love to incorporate in our home...I end up changing it in some way.
These pieces are things we have had for quite sometime and I wanted to give them a little different feel.
The Mola above was purchased in Panama in the 60's while I lived down there with my first husband. I had the old frame laying around...it was an antique gold. I thought it would be more striking painted a dark, dark bluish purple. Completely changes the feel of the thing.
This old funky mirror was actually in a pile of junk. The frame was silver..but I loved the funky look of it. Brought it home, glued the small mirror in the center and painted the frame that same moroccan blue. Looks so much more interesting.
And finally this old lampshade...it has been a million different colors as I paint it whenever the mood strikes. Blue again~~ as I am adding it to my color scheme and I've adorned it with some old fringe from a scarf.
I believe a person's home speaks volumes about the person living there.
I've never been one to follow current trends as I seem to have my own funky style.
Like it or not....I truly think everyone should follow their heart when doing their home. Don't worry if it isn't the latest in thing or doesn't look "decorated to the nines".
Just me and my opinion.
