Keys, Guitars, and Teacups

The painting in this post is going to confirm the ADD that keeps appearing as I get older. It is just all-over the place. My MIL was throwing these plaques in the dumpster when I just grabbed them and thought that I could so something with them, (does that get me points for being green?) They are plastic and were white and gold. I sprayed them and then painted them black and drybrushed colors on them. They have metallics brushed here and there, but you can't see that in the picture. Ok, I have two more of them if anyone sees these and thinks,"Where can I get a set of those for myself?" Does anyone think that? The other two are a little bit different design but you too could take advantage of painting and having these great works of art hanging in your home. I am not painting them for you, but I will give them (send them) free of charge to anyone that wants them. Can't beat a freebie!
This is for a friend's son 12th birthday. Tina, I know that John reads my blog regularly (not) so make sure that he does not see this! It, too is splattered with metallics. This was fun to paint!

The next two items I found, already painted, in the basement stash. This had a little chip in it and I am sure that is how it ended up on a shelf. The little cabinet I painted a lifetime ago and have never had anywhere to hang it. It may go in a guest bedroom. I forgot I had it. Now you may ask, "How in the world could you lose something that big in a stash and not know it was there?" (If you are not asking that, you are one of us) If you are asking that, the few people, and you know who you are, that have had the opportunity to see the stash will understand that I have a problem in my basement...I am working on it but it is a long road to recovery...I may not live long enough.
The first two items take two more items off my list! Yippee!

I feel it's like finding junk in the first place when I go hunting in the pile!! hmmm... maybe I should go hunting in my own pile for that mid-winter junkin need!!

I really like those key plaques... they would look cute paired with a shelf with the old door knobs attached as hooks.... DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS UNTIL AFTER 3/17!!! LOLOLOL!
