So on Sunday when I was taking out the trash,
I came upon this ...
I love how people put things they don't want anymore
"next" to the trash so someone like me can
come along and do that- tilt your head to the side thing
and say quietly to yourself "why is this in the trash?"
...then look both ways and haul it home!
I think at one time this señorita hung in a Mexican restaurant
or something, because I could faintly see the words burrito and
salsa and an outline of a chili drawn in chalk pen.
Pobrecita:( she was dirty, scratched and in desperate need
of a makeover:)
So I gave her a good scrubbing and then started that makeover
with a fresh layer of
After that dried, I tackled the frame. At first
I painted it white and....
HATED it!! It was too stark:(
So Rio told me I needed to paint it gold.
After it all dried, I was looking at it and I thought it just
needed a little something more...
So I drove the 3 minutes to Rio's house and used her Silhouette
RIO used the machine. I sat on her couch (wearing a ridiculous ensemble
because I was freezing) and played games on my phone while
she went to work printing me some letters.
Then because Rio is a control freako like her mama,
she came over and put the letters on,
because "you won't do it right mom".
I love her:)
And here she is all bright and shiny!
She sits at the top of the landing on the second floor,
near the guest room:)
From basura to treasure!!
