Now we know that too many decals can be a bit
"much"...but as we were surveying our wares,
we noted that a wee (or not so wee) flower, placed
just so, can really add that certain something to
a somewhat blah treasure.
Or biggest project...the bar stools from JCPenney.
The seats were wrong so Bee recovered them,
the backs were wrong so her husband painted over
the design, then I recreated the look of the paint &
shading of the rest of the chair then added the decal
for a French Country feel. They turned out really well.
These tin signs were at Home Goods & TJ Maxx all last
summer. They were painted in shades that we didn't
like, so we re-painted them pink...what else. Added glitter
& the decals were the final accent.
A little pink flower accent needed a little decal
"Pick-me-up"...so cute in the bathroom.
(sorry...there is no natural light in this
Little "Big Lots" tray that I sort of pickled to bring
out the detail and added the decal for interest.
I needed a little something for an odd corner
of my room and I had a set of these milk glass
plates, so I just popped a decal on!
A gift tin from Starbucks... it was silver, but
had so many cute details...the "swirlies" on
top, the curvy sides...so, in a wink, it was
pink with the tiniest decal on top!
Tiny flower pot with a tiny jeweled starfish by
the tiny Adirondack on the bathroom shelf.
I'm sure you have all seen this tray around for
years...well my sister thought it was a bit too,
uh, "white" so I added this very romantic decal.
And, last but not least, this Home Goods watering
can was cute enough, but a coat of pinkness and
the big fluffy roses decal made it perfect!
