WARNING!!! This is not for the faint of heart!
I have to warn you that I tend to get a little out of hand when the wheels start turning and I’m on a mission. ALSO, when I spend nearly nothing on something someone almost threw away!!
OK…Monologue over. Here is what I came up with:
This is supposed to be my “whimsical tree”. Although it may not look too much like it. I knew I wanted a long vine like tree and I wanted it to look whimsical but I couldn’t get the image I wanted so I googled one and this popped up. Well not this exactly, but similar to it. I carried this look and feel to the slats. See Below:
You can barely see them from the photo but I drew white swirls all over the back and front of each slat. No rhyme or reason really, just swirls all over the place.
Bottom line is I had a REALLY fun time drawing and coloring and outlining this little “work of art”. I think at the end of the day if it makes you smile, it was worth it.
Not to mention this was an eye sore before! I like the end result and I’m smiling! Are you?
