I am located in Tomball, near Houston, Texas therefore, I am available for custom work.

Please share my video if you enjoyed it.  It’s greatly appreciated!

50 Shades of Grey

Stand up mirrors are beautiful.  I always desired one.  Well, lo and behold, I found this treasure in my local thrift shop.  I snatched it up immediately.  I had a grand vision for this mirror.  I was envisioning 50 shades of Grey. LOL. Seriously.

Actually, it was two shades of grey:  ASCP Paris Grey and Folk Art Metallic Grey.  Then, I distressed and waxed with a black antiquing wax.  I was very happy with the way she turned out.



Viola!IMG_1091She is a beauty!  I was very happy in the way, she turned out.

As always, Hope and Happiness.
