Make Do and Mend Monday
A couple of years ago a friend gave me this plaque. I'm showing the back here because Terri-like I started the project before I took the before photo...The plaque has a raised heart on the opposite side and the base heart was this shade of red, while the raised heart had a bright green background upon which a rooster pranced, with the word WELCOME above his head. I liked the piece a lot and hung it on the backdoor. One day I noticed that the bright green and the rooster, too had turned a sickish sort of blue color. I removed the plaque from the backdoor at that time.
I kept the piece because it was sturdy and I figured I could do something with it. Well today was my day to do something. I used scrapbook paper and a picture cut from an old calendar. I used paint I had on hand to cover the red paint. This is what I ended up with:
