Happy Friday, and happy early Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there! I plan to celebrate by working on last minute projects for Lucketts, and hitting the flea market- that’s how I have fun!
Sarah and I have been busy plotting our “look” for Lucketts, and now that it’s only 8 days away (EEK!) I am going to share some snippets of what I’ve been working on! We actually started a pinterest board where we could collaborate and share ideas we saw and loved. We’ve decided to focus on black, white, wood, with touches of gold and a pop of color. This past month, we’ve been plotting and painting, working towards an eclectic sophisticated style with a touch of rustic and glam.
I shared with you a glamorous gold and white bamboo dresser the other day, and you got a little sneak peek of the DIY artwork I plan to bring to Lucketts to help define our space, and hopefully help us stand out!
About a month ago, Michael’s had a giant sale on canvases, and I scooped up a bunch! I knew I wanted to keep the designs simple, and I was inspired both by Julia’s gold leaf modern art- I loved her idea of adding gold to it!
I wanted to start with a clean white slate, but I don’t like when canvases aren’t first painted, so I started out by painting them with General Finishes Snow White….
It’s hard to see, but that is gold leafing on the rays….
This image is not as good quality, but my crappy phone camera was able to catch the gold leaf a little more.
And this one is my favorite- “little darling”.
