Art Refab…Refab…Refab

I went to a community yard sale this weekend and scored some great deals. I got this heavy-as-all-get-out plaster art piece. The piece itself didn’t look too shabby the color it was.

But if you notice it had a corner missing and some chips in the plaster.

Nothing a little plaster of Paris could fix. Not bad for my first time trying to do this huh?

So I got this fun greeny color by Rustoleum’s American Accent line called Seaside Green.

It was a little too shiny and bright so I dry-brushed on an antiquing solution in Apple Butter Brown and I totally loved it.

Then I took it up to my bedroom and it wasn’t even close to matching. I guess it helps if you look at your colors once before you buy paint. So I went and got American Accent’s Leafy Green, and antiqued it.

I liked the first color much better but the second one matched better but I hated it. Third times the charm right? So they didn’t have any blues I liked in the American Accents so I got a Rustoleum but it was a gloss finish. I wasn’t excited about that but the color looked like it might work.

Well because of the different finishes (I am assuming) it made this cool crackle in some places.

And this is the finished product after I antiqued it.

Here it is on the wall between my two windows in my bedroom.

And here is my bedding that I got the color from. I know…I know…I need a headboard. That is on my list of things to make. I will get to it someday.
