What a relief to have my first piece sold! It was snapped up within a day ~ I am so excited to have it find a new home with Erin. I hope that she will enjoy it.
I have another item to list. This one is not upcycled so much as just cleaned up.
This is an old wood window with 8 little panes. The frame is a good size ~ about 24"H x 45"W. I removed the old glass and the stubborn putty used to hold it in place then sanded the frame and did a few little repairs to the wood. I debated painting it, but I really like the way the layers of paint and wood show through. There is a layer of white and a peachy shade and a bluish-green layer as well as the wood. It would make a lovely statement on a mantle or hanging on a wall with other pictures hanging within the individual frames. This is the kind of thing that has limitless possibilities when decorating.
Here you can see a few of the layers showing through a little better.
I am also beyond thrilled to have my first commission piece to start on. It is a little end table and I am really looking forward to getting started on it.
Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback and patience as I am working on getting my little business up and running. I am so encouraged!
