not so nice

I'm working on a painting that doesn't quite know which direction it wants to go so it must be break time. Yesterday I went poking through thrift shops but found nothing. Clearly I am not alone in the hunt for those smaller pieces worth rescuing.  I finished up the little cupboard I found last week again with the chalk paint, this time two layers, blue under the white. I like the way it peeks out just a little here and there. The wax on top seems to enhance that nicely, or not nicely, depending on how you look at it. Nice is highly overrated.

  1. Gorgeous! Did you take the top carved piece off for good? What plans do you have for it?
