The flowers were rusty and it just lacked luster. I have to be honest, I was a little apprehensive about doing it. Some people like things all rusty and chippy. What if I ruined it?
Don't we all say that every now and then? Well how will we ever know till we do it!
This is how it looked with the welded areas.
See how the paint is oxidized
The flower just looks tired. So after wrapping it and taping off all the flowers and leaves I began to paint the base in a flat white.
I hand painted each flower with a small paintbrush
This is the look underneath
The flowers are painted in a gloss and I left the centers to not mess with the integrity of the piece.
So much better! Looks fresh and new. A perfect spring project!
It just comes alive! Another surprise paint job! Wish I had a picture of it all hung and lit!
So tackle that project that has you scared! You will be glad you did!!
