So, I had this fleur-de-lis decoration....
And it didn't even start out silver!!! It was a mottled gold/copper. I wish I had a picture....it was okay when I first got it a few years ago. But I've realized my love for color in my life and so while I loved the shape I did not love the color.
So, I thought I'd change it to silver. It was better but very flat looking. I now realize that a stain over it probably would have given it some dimension.
Hey, I'm a slow learner, k?? :)
Although now that it's red.....
I like it better!!! I even think the stain on the silver would have been nice but it was still going to blend into the background. Because now that it is red and has a new home....
I think the red is perfecto!!!
Another thing that I like about it now is that it looks like it's made out of cast iron.
Is that important you ask?
No, but in it's previous two colors it looked like a decoration from the store.
In red it looks like it could be vintage!
And I love me some vintage!!!
See you next time!!
