Hello old friends and a big welcome to all my new readers ...happy to have you back at the nest once again.
So today I want to talk about stepping outside your comfort zone.
Whether it is trying a new craft, art form or even a new job, the idea is the same.
Don't worry about messing it up or failing, because if you never try....I'm here to tell you that you have already failed.
This week I stepped out of my comfort zone of paint colors and went bold
Have you seen this fabulous website?
These girls are so brave with their color choices and I love that!
Kind of a "Go Big Or Go Home' attitude.
I bought this three shelf accent table of a guys front lawn.
I think he felt guilty asking $10.00 for it. I know I felt guilty giving him just $10.00.
Sweet little table with brass feet and an unusual trio of wide shelves.
A nice solid table....but a little boring and the top was messed up a bit.
This quiet table is about to get the shock of it's life...
Let the 'shock and awe' begin!
Well here she is in all her Antibes Green and Paris Grey glory.
I was very nervous with those first couple of green brush strokes...I have to be honest, but I really like the end result.
I love the green and grey pairing....really love it.
After some clear and dark wax, I loved it even more.
Look how smooth the distressing is...like a true age worn piece.
I cleaned up the lion's head just enough to let some shine come through while still leaving some of the age intact.
He looks proud to be anchoring this new bold table.
My Antibes table is headed to my Fox Den space to hopefully find a good home.
Are you ready to step outside your comfort zone?
Tell me about it!
Until next time....be kind and stay creative.
