I know, it sounds like an oxymoron. But just wait.
I picked up some mounted antlers yesterday at Tattered Tiques.
They were a little on the rough side…perfect candidate for a makeover. My plan was to cover the middle piece with fabric and maybe paint the plaque. But Nancy suggested covering the plaque part in fabric. Genius!
So I unscrewed the antler section from the plaque and painted it in French Linen chalk paint.
And covered the plaque with a very thin linen…I think bulky fabric would be difficult. I just pulled the fabric tight and hot glued it on the backside.
Then after some third degree glue gun burns (I never learn) I reattached the antlers and VOILA…
Pretty antlers! Told ya.
I hung them in the guest cottage bathroom, which is getting a makeover.
I love the way they look against the beadboard.
It felt great to play with paint and fabric again…after a nice long break I feel my mojo slowly returning!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
