Remember this sconce


Heres what it looked like when I purchased this sconce.

I gave it a coat of primer




Ta da!! It is painted with soft pinks and pearl. I highlighted the raised area. I put in vintage lace, a very vintage millinary rose, I added the glass glitter to the leaves. I copied a vintage card that I had and added the heart...topping the whole thing off with my little pink bird that I dyed to go with the rose. It's going on Ebay!

Amazing transformation! You have a gift for recreating or redesigning or whatever. I am not quite so creative! Thanks for visiting Miller Manor! I'm glad you had a good time, and hope you come back often. It is always nice to make new friends!
