LITTLE CROWN OF GOLD

I BOUGHT THIS LITTLE BOOKEND AT
THE THRIFT STORE THE OTHER DAY.
IT WAS ONLY .70 CENTS
BUT I HAD AN IDEA.

HERE SHE IS..
IT REMINDED ME OF A LITTLE CROWN BUT IN THE GOLD
IT LOOKED VERY CHEAP AND FLIMSY..

I GOT OUT THE GOOD OLD
OIL RUBBED BRONZE SPRAY..
I LOVE THIS STUFF.
AND I SPRAYED HER.. BUT I FOUND
THAT WASN'T ENOUGH. SO
I WENT TO MICHAEL'S AND BOUGHT
THIS TUBE OF STUFF CALLED
RUB AND BUFF IN PATINA
I PUT A LITTLE ON A RAG AND
WHAT A DIFFERENCE..

ITS JUST A LITTLE MAKEOVER BUT SOMETIMES ITS NOT
THE SIZE OF THE PACKAGE THAT MATTERS.
IT ONLY TOOK ME A FEW MINUTES TO DO,  GOTTA LOVE THAT.

  1. Very cute! Gotta love spray paint. And way to go on the extra tep with the patina. I'm sure it made all the difference. It definitely puts this over the top!
