Painting success!

It took about 4 months to do these projects. I had all the material, plenty of time - I guess I just didn't want to screw them up. And, I did, but I am still pretty proud of them!


Both were incredibly easy, and incredibly cheap. Like most things in my life, I don't have an endless amount of patience. So, when it comes to taping, planning and taking my time to paint - well it just doesn't happen. I like instant gratification.

First the antlers - no tape used, I just winged it. If you don't have antlers lying around (thanks to Sam, the hunter man who found these - and many more - while out in the great outdoors) you can actually order them online. Then get yourself some acrylic pant, some paintbrushes & go to town. The painted beauties are now on my mantle, where hopefully they won't be examined because they are FAR from perfect, but they make me happy!
The chairs were a purchase from Home Again way back in the beginning of the house building. They were a sad sad brown color, so I loosely followed this DIY. Same theory as with the antlers - little patience & instant gratification = many drip marks and gold speckle everywhere, but if you squint they look perfect!

Chandelier update (finally!)

Remember way back when I asked which chandelier you all liked better? 
It was finally delivered and installed a few weeks ago and I am just now getting around to snapping some photos of it... bad sharer - I know.
So.....what do you think?!
I also did some picture hanging on Saturday. Some of you may have saw them on instagram (username: padgetthoke)
I have no patience for measuring or planning, so I just winged it. I am tickled with the outcome.
ps - did you spot tucker's photo bomb(s)? he is precious.
