I’m so excited, I finally got “W” monogrammed on the twin headboards- turned window treatment that were above the master bedroom windows. They’ve been plain for a while waiting for me to get my nerves up to try doing it myself.
A few weeks back our town had an auction and few people donated some items for the charity event. There were a pair of painted Palmetto tree wine glasses donated for the silent auction. They were really nice and I was told a local artist painted them. Come to find out the talented artist has a shop right across the street from my house (duuuhhh) boy did I overlook that hidden jewel. I’m going to introduce you to Ms. Peggy Brickles very soon. But moving along with my excitement. I asked her if she does stenciling and she sure does! So I picked out the letter and gave her a feel of how I want it to look. Thank God she read my mind…. 🙂 which I believe is part of the hidden perception of what artists do.. they visualize what you’re trying to convey and bring it to fruition. OK – So.. down comes the headboards (omg! can you say dust – chuckles… ah-choo, ah-choo) and I took them to her (dust free of course) for her to work her artist magic on them. A couple of days later I get a texted picture of the finished product and my jaw dropped.. PERFECT!!!! It was exactly what I wanted… I couldn’t wait to pick them up. This is how they turned out.
Didn’t she do a FANTASTIC job! I applaud Peg for putting the cherry on top of my unfinished sundae (so to speak). I got them home and up they went..
Even the hubby liked them..
