Animal Print Paint
Animal print just seems to keep coming back in my life, not just in the projects I do…but my clothes, and fabrics as well. I’m not sure that it ever goes out of style.
Not too long ago my sister, daughter and I were haunting around looking for goodies in different junk stores. I found the cutest little children’s desk stuck in a dark corner of one store. It was covered in junk….dusty and hidden away from view.
I absolutely fell in LOVE…..it just screamed out my name as I passed by. It was completely raw wood….and just ready for some imagination. She had Long skinny legs….I’m sooooo jealous!
When I got home with her….I had my paints and tool out within ten minutes….and away I went. I just couldn’t let this one sit and gather another single particle of dust!
Now some projects have to sit in a corner of MY house for a while before I know what they’re gonna be….but some….they tell me right off the bat what to transform them into! And she knew….and she told me!!!
I had to go to the shop and find some scrap wood for her metamorphosis….and I began to draw. As the pencil went across the wood…..she became.
I attached it….drew her spots…and painted her up. She just needed some animal print paint…did she not?
My sister brought me an ugly piece of wig she found at her house….she had no idea what I would do with it….but she knew I’d use it. I knew the second I got my hands on it…..it was for the desk.
She now stands proud…and ready for a kiddo to study and draw on!
What do ya think?
Have a Great Day!
