I wanted to show you my latest project that I have listed in my shop - Lula Belle. I found these mirrored sconces at an antique store in the mountains. When I am on the search for items I rarely find something that I would sell as is. Most things I find are pieces that have the potential to be something fabulous and my passion is to make that happen - to take something ordinary and make it into something extraordinary.
Here are the sconces in their original condition.
I painted them carefully being sure to not to paint too thick which would mess with the gorgeous detail.
Next I sanded them so that the gold paint underneath would show through in places where a piece would naturally get worn with age.
And lastly I added an antique glaze for that vintage chic charm that is so gorgeous and elegant.
The pair are for sale in my shop - Lula Belle - Vintage Pair of Mirrored Sconces. Check them out! Also check out my other items while you are there.
