Which speaks to you more? Layers of age, and rust?
Or, are you more on the shabby side? Do you prefer the simplicity of white?
If you're like me, you like both.
These are my latest redesigns. When I found these, they were sorta crowns. I say sorta, because, well, they were flimsy, and had funky shapes attached to them. Oh how I wish I had a before. I removed the weird swirly things from the wire part, reconfigured the top piece (which looked more like a bad star burst originally), and added the ornamental embellishment around the base.
I painted them both white at first. Then, my rustic side layered on dye, paint, plaster, and I don't remember what else to give the second one that aged look I love so much.
So, are you rustic, shabby, or a little of both? See ya soon.
Love them both!ReplyDelete
I don't care what I prefer..GOTTA LOVE THAT CROWN!! I'll give you my address, pretty Rosemary, lol! Have a super week.ReplyDelete
Both but prefer the rustic.ReplyDelete
You do amazing work.
Both are gorgeous but I'd say I favor shabby:)ReplyDelete
I think I'm both. It depends upon the piece. If it like it, I don't even think about one or the other. I believe that the two go so well together, you can hardly have one without the other. Great job on these! Hugs, LeenaReplyDelete
