I think the fish stickers scared people away. It had been marked down three times.
I just peeled them off and sanded the heck out of it.
Here's my favorite assistant helping me wash it off.
A very bright aqua spray paint was applied. After that I distressed it by sanding all the edges and even a little on the surface areas.
If you read my blog regularly, you'll recognize the burlap lamp and house.
I love the pop of color it gives this room. A little more whimsy for this room.
Forget the chefs. Check out the faux crystal knob and distressed background. Bingo!
I cut out some scrapbooking paper and covered up the chefs. I used a glue stick in case I ever wanted to repurpose this piece again.
I've been missing my Dad, so I cut out this photo of him as a child, and put this metal scrapbooking frame over it. I got some of those at Big Lots a couple of years ago. I wish I had bought a bunch more!
Instead of hanging it directly on the wall, I wanted to add a pop of lime green. I tied the ribbon on the handles.
Last but not least, the letters Bob. My kids called my Dad Big Bob, so when I find more scrabble letters I'll add the B-I-G.
Thanks for looking!
