BORING!!!

 I decided this "Plain Jane" needed just a little make up. By that I mean some very cool stylized painting. I wish I could say I simply stenciled this. So please feel my pain when I tell you I hand painted it. It was actually kinda relaxing though watching tv, something I never do, and painting away.  Took quite a while though (2 hours but who's counting?) and gave the same result of stenciling....ugh! Here it is before...

    Thanks for visiting my blog, Sue! I'm completely wowed that you hand-painted those flourishes--they look identical! How did you do it?!?

    I did hand paint but I traced the design out first. So, it's kinda like coloring with a paint brush. It really is easy if you use the right size/shape brushes.

    I love it - you have a very steady hand! I've hand painted something once, and will definitely stencil next time!

    I was looking at your table thinking it was pretty cute and then I saw the "after" and yes...it's even prettier! Great job!
