Lace and Bottles

I had so much fun with my altered bottle, I made more, and did another lace design. It was a nice break after spending a good deal of the morning prepping furniture.

I used a cherub transfer on this bottle.  You can see my altered bottle w/Splendid Blender transfer tutorial here.

After I finished the bottles, I altered this piece.

The before.

I used a lace design, the same colors I used here, and spray painted vintage rings. These are the rings that were used for hanging pictures, mirrors, and plaques. Now they are drawer pulls.

Time to get some rest. Finishing up some of my furniture tomorrow.
