Hospice Ceramics & Stool Makeover

Several years ago I received a ceramic angel from my grandmother. Hospice sells these ceramic angels at Christmas time. I thought it would be a good idea to display it in a shadow box. I went out and purchased a shadow box & a piece of scrapbook paper. I glued the paper to the back of the frame, and then glued the angel down to the paper.

Like I said this was several years ago, and l believe it is time for a facelift. It needs an updated background for sure and possibly new paint on the frame. This is what it looks like now:

I need to figure out which room I am going to put it in, and then make up my mind on colors. As soon as I have changed it up I will post my result.

My grandmother is a volunteer for Hospice. At one of their volunteer celebrations she was awarded a ceramic heart for her service. At the time I told her I would make her a shadow box for it like I had made for myself. Now, keep in mind this was also a couple of years ago. I just made it today! Here it is better late than never:

Earlier this week I reupholstered one of my stools. This was my great grandmother’s stool that I have had about ten years. I also thought that the time had come for change. Here it is with it's new look:



I am not sure what has come over me, but I am wanting to redo everything!! I have several projects in progress right now. So, as soon as I am finished I will be sure to share........

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am fairly new to blogging too (started mid December). It's lots of fun!

I read through your your tureen.... and a family treasure! And I, like you, am looking at items differently (I want to redo everything too)

You did a great job on your stool! Recovering my dining room chairs is on my to do list for 2009@

I look forward to seeing what you post next!

Have a great day!
