Paris Grey Architectural Piece
This is how it looked when I found it…a little too much contrast for me! But I could see lots of possibilities and at $1.91…yes, you read that correctly!…it hopped right into my cart!
And with the addition of some Annie Sloan Paris Grey paint, here it is! Honestly, my intention was to give it a good coat of that color and top it off with some Old White and then distress it…but then I realized that would hide all of its personality!
I love the way the original turquoise and gold are peeking through! It really gives it an aged look!
But now…what to do with it? Baby Kitty suggests adding a stack of vintage books…
…and I do like the look of all of that texture!
Maybe I’ll top it with one of my double happiness jars filled with hydrangeas…
…or my favorite Santos cage doll. Hmmm…it seems that I had some difficulty taking this shot without Baby Kitty’s tail getting in the way!
Don’t you love the little cherub at her base? And the colors in the clouds complement the painted piece!
But I have to say that my favorite is the stack of starfish!
The colors are just so light and summery! I think I am going to find a lot of ways to use my new bargain!
