Remember when I told you that Romeo had an artist commission a painting for me?
And then I told you I was fibbing.
And you still loved me.
I didn’t tell you this part.
That same day…..I got this painting at the same place……. and it was only 6.99.
This is supposed to be a before picture but I was too lazy to take off the painters tape so you could really get the before feeling…..
Sorry about that.
I wasn’t really sure if I was a big fan of it or not.
I loved the beach theme and the old time feel.
It is expensively matted and framed.
It weighs about 1000 pounds….
It is a signature print…..not a copy…….
Whoop diddly doo……
It wasn’t enough to impress me either.
I still didn’t know if I was a fan or not.
I HATED the frame.
I felt like it made the painting look cheap.
This pickled color of wood is very popular here at the beach.
Alot of our beach houses use this color for it’s light and airy feel…..Â
Did I sound like I knew what I was talking about?
I don’t have a clue why we use it.….we just do.
But anyways….I don’t like it for my personal home…it doesn’t go with my style.
I stained it.
Then, the stain was too shiny for me…..and it sat in my garage forever…….bugging me.
So, this morning, when I went out to get a tape measure for another project…..
I saw it staring me in the face.
I was tired of looking at it just propped up in the garage.
So, I distressed the stain and waxed it………
To see if I liked that better.
Then I came back in with it.
And I forgot to get the tape measure.
I think I like it.
And it’s growing on me more and more.
If you are hanging over my stair rail……
It looks like this.
If you are hanging over my stair rail………I hope you were invited in.
If you are 5 foot and have to “shoot up” at everything…..it looks like this from the right side.
I think it has found it’s new home.
And just so you know…….
INCLUDING THE ANTIQUE TABLE…….that is under this painting……
Was bought at a yard sale or Goodwill.
Except the people in this photo.
Aren’t they cute?
I love this photo. I took it after we almost lost my dad.
I love that he is squinting and my mom is laughing…..
I had better shots.
I just love this one.
But I wanted you to know that you couldn’t find a set like these two at Goodwill or a yard sale.
They are mine.
But if you don’t have a “set” like them…….they would love you just like you are theirs.
It is the way they are.
Makes my 6.99 picture seem worthless in comparison.
I guess some of our best deals in life are free……….
