I picked up this item today at a thrift store. I fell in love when I first saw it. I have a thing for anything with hearts on it!!!
My thoughts behind picking it up... to transform it into something wonderful (as if it is not wonderful as is, I love it) for my best friend as one of her bday gifts...
which is the 22nd of this month!
I was thinking about putting a layer or two of urethane on it to make it shinny. I love the old rustic look, but think it would look great with a bit of shine also. Not sure if I will or not. Then, what next? As I said, it is nice as is, but I want to do something MORE to it. I *could* remove the rings that hold the three pieces together and create three different ideas, but not sure that I 'want to do so' but totally NOT against doing so.
This piece is approximately 64-65 inches long- all three pieces together, the hearts/bows are approx 4 inches each, (minus the rings connecting the three sections) each section is approx 20 inches.
*In this photo, I taped it to my wall, lol, so you can see/get an idea of what it looks like......*
*This photo shows it laying on my table, with the sections folded to show where it separates.... *
Any and ALL suggestions/ideas are welcome. I appreciate the input ladies (and gents if there are any who read/reply, lol).
