|Decoupage images based on Josephine|
Bonaparte's love for roses and fashion.
Let's catch up...I love Etsy and have formed new relationships with clients. So far, so good.
Now let's talk chairs. I found this cute chair along the curb. Yes, hard to believe what people discard! The chair is in good condition and in sound condition....always a priority! Even though I may like a chair, but it is not sound, I must leave it behind OR sometimes I drag it home, paint it and put it in my garden. I will save my garden chair story for another time though!
So, originally the chair had chippy paint in a very light pink. The original color was too light for me, so I watered down some pink exterior paint and gave the piece a layered paint effect. Love the outcome at this point! Enjoy the pictures at the bottom of this page too!!!
Then, I still was unhappy with the look of the chair....so I decoupaged images of Joseph Bonaparte with Modge Podge. Josephine loved roses and was a trendsetter in the fashion world. The roses are Josephine's and the fashion scenes depict Josephine.
I am happy with the outcome of the chair. Lots of time involved though...selecting images, clipping images, layout, etc. But it was well worth it!
My pieces all have a story and I especially enjoyed making this piece. This chair will be a welcome addition to any Shabby Chic, Cottage Chic, or girly girl bedroom.
Until next time....Saving the Earth, one rescued chair at a time....Scrounge Hound :)
