Aging an urn

So, I'm going to try this again; the blog thing. I love junk. Plain and simple. I love to bring old things to life through experimentation. And I really only like to buy things that are dirt cheap. This one was actually new and I used it for a while in it's "new looking" state before antiquing it. Here is a before and after.

The first one is an unfinished plaster vase/urn that I bought for around $10. I don't remember the exact colors I used on it because I've had it for a while and never intended to need to know, but I'm pretty sure it was a cream acrylic paint and a dark brown glaze.

I'm thinking of consigning it, but I really want to keep it, but I really don't have room for it.

So, I said I was going to do this and be good at it. I obviously lied. I am going to work on figuring it out just as an outlet because I am so very opinionated. My thoughts are generally too long for a facebook post, not that it stops me, haha.

My first....

Well, here I am.... A blogger. I know absolutely nothing about blogs or blogging but I think it will be more my taste, when compared to other social media. I think they are all kinda dumb and I feel too old for them. I absolutely LOVE finding "junk" and making it pretty or repurposing it. That will probably be the majority of my postings. Occasionally though, I get philosophical and I'll apologize now, only once. This blog needs some meat on it's bones and I can't wait to share!!
