This is an altered Vase, I changed to match my newly painted kitchen. It may look brown in the photo but it's actually egg plant like the curtains in the picture below. I gessoed it, then painted it with acrylics paints, outlined it with a black sharpie. Lastly coated it with two coats of modge podge, and two of varnish!
I also changed the candle holders, they now have a more folk-art flavor to them. I painted them similar to the vase but didn't match them exactly. Let me tell you how hard that was, being a matching sort of girl! I am so tempted to change that bluey purple to match the maroon or eggplant purple like the vase. Since it has the final coats on it, that may be difficult.
This is another view of the candle holders, which is a very orange shade of red. It looks really red in the photo. It may be more apparent once you see the before and after pictures of my kitchen. Soon to come!
Before pattern of the above pieces!
Here is the plant pot, which was a part of the above set. It was hand painted by the same artist, and yes, every piece matched this one! Quite a difference wouldn't you say! I noticed some initials on the bottom of all the pieces, but I have no idea who the artist was. I usually initial my art, I'm thinking maybe I should put my full art name on them. What do you do?
