After and Before



I found this wall sconce and I didnt think it was very attractive so I hung it up and looked at it for a few days. There was a funny dip on the top, it wasnt flat. So I painted it, pink, glazed it, I then gave it a spritz of Glimmer Mist, washed on a little pearl paint, when I got it to the point that I liked, I had to dye some wool to match, for the bird. I added the pin cushion and vintage flowers on both sides then for a hint of sparkle I stuck on some austrian crystals. I placed a piece of vintage velvet ribbon around its neck. I made the leaves out of vintage green velvet ribbon.
