Our Christmas wreath for our front door has been around for a LONG time … I’m talking, since our kids were little and our oldest is now 18! We were pulling out decorations this week and I took a look at that thing and had a chuckle. It sure has seen its day and is looking drab and weary. I forgot to take a before pic of the front, but here is the back, so you can see what I’ve done differently.
I had just finished painting my Aunty’s cabinet (I’ll blog about this one soon). The outside is a bluish white.
Before I could even think about grabbing my camera for a “before” pic of the wreath, I grabbed that thing and started literally “cleaning my brush” on its greenery. The results were lovely!
Now, I have a snow tipped wreath, and I can work on a little bit of decoration to replace the dreary ribbons & holly berry that have seen better days.
