From Ordinary to Absolutely Terrific!

Three weeks ago, hubby and I took a quick trip to Southern Oregon and we found this in Roseburg!  Loved that it was solid wood and that the trim details were pretty much intact.  All the knobs – lovely!!!


Brown and ordinaryCleaned her up, repaired a break and hubby started painting when I took a break:

Yep, our workshop-lol!

Yep, our workshop-lol!

After two coats of Annie Sloan’s Florence and some dark wax, voila!

In all her beauty!

In all her beauty!

Florence still makes my heart sing!

A Quick Makeover – Oil Rubbed Bronze Paint (Heart)

Can we use ORB Paint enough?  I don’t think so!  What a fabulous color and how it makes any ordinary object not so ordinary:


Inexpensive clock

Bad paint and even worse clock face!

Front and back painted with ORB paint after the clock face removed.

Glue on a mirror and voila!


Great on an inside wall or on a patio!
