I was thinking today, and tomorrow is Anniversary Celebrations for kids, they got to leave the Cuckoo Nest as I called it … and guess what, now they have their own!!,
I wonder when they do the wedding vows, why do they make it so Negative… Till Death Do You Part!! … why not be positive ….like This is a Life Sentence….see Life more positive then Death!!
Change is Good!!
Cheers from the Empty Cuckoo Nest!!
Interesting take Gloria, food for thought!
Spent today fixing up a pair of curtains in my living-room. They are sun bleached dark brown curtains and I have been wanting to do something with them for some time. Once I used acrylic paint and gel to makeover a shower curtain. I have used the same process on a chair believe it or not. Both lasted years and years. It was the gel that made all the difference, kept the paint flexible and it never peeled. Despite moisture on the curtain, and heavy use on the chair. I have decided my house needs to be skulls and sugar skulls everywhere. So, I took these curtains and used acrylic paint and filled them with sugar skulls. It took forever, and I did not have the gel to use this time. But I think it will be just fine since it is on plain old curtains. Here is the process, and end result. It was tedious near the end, but so worth it!
I am sitting here reflecting on my job well done and it occurs to me how much energy and effort I put into these two curtain panels. All the reaching and bending to work around wet paint and to go back to areas and add colour, my muscles are trembling a wee bit from all that work and I am pleasantly satisfied with my work. It will still take a day or two to get used to these busy curtains compared to the former plain brown look. But the whole thing was intimidating to start but now that it is done it was an easier process than I expected. I look forward to waking up to these tomorrow morning in a groggy half daze and hopefully being surprised by forgetting they have been changed. I have already been looking around my house for other things to paint. Tomorrow I will post the peg hanger I decorated simply and the picture frame that I will be making a sugar skull insert tomorrow. Until then, -Toodles.
