A New Purpose
You would think that painting it would be the easy part, well, at least that is I what I thought. Hmm, I may not have admitted it here before but I really don't like prepping and base coating a project; I usually put off working on things because of it. I could paint endlessly (ok, that word is longer than I really mean) if I didn't have to prep and basecoat. Ok, back to my story...where was I? O yes...painting the lid. I knew kinda of what I wanted on the lid but didn't really have a pattern; so with a vision in my head I picked up the brush and started painting. First I put in the snowmen and then carts. Now what? I painted this and that and then covered over it; painted again and then covered it again.....urrgh! It took several attempts before I got what I wanted and then I tightened down the details. This is the final product....whew! Nothing like flying by the seat of your pants and hoping something will turn out.
I will be adding a wire hanger to it so it can hang on the wall. Wouldn't a prim towel be a nice finishing touch to this piece? Click on the photos to see an close-up view.
Have you ever considered what your purpose is?
Til next time
