A little Window Finial

Here's something I picked up at the benefit sale for Leah...It's actually made of some type of plastic/styrofoam material. It's very light weight, but has great detail. With just a little Rustoleum's Semi-Gloss black, I was able to make this fit in with my style...
Here's an overall picture...She ties in nicely with my other decor in this room, but I really went back and forth on putting her above the door in that room, or above the window. We'll let her be for a few days and see what happens. Let me know what you think. Love, Kelly

  1. Love the transformation -- it's just beautiful!

  2. Cool! I think I can see it more over a door, though. I like your shutters, too, a nice clean look.

  3. I agree, I think it will look better above the door.

  4. Love it, but I also agree that it would be better above a door! I'm visiting with TRH, hope you visit me too.

  5. This project made me heart go pitter pat. Well done.

  6. How pretty! It looks great painted black.

    I'm hosting a giveaway and I'd love it if you stopped by!

  7. Kelly,
    I actually have that item you made over. I had it over my master bedroom door until we did our recent master bedroom/bath remodel that I recently featured on my blog. I bought that item maybe 15-20 years ago through the Lillian Vernon mail order catalog. I was wondering whether to donate or redo. Now that I have seen your redo, I'll think I give mine a shot. I'll send you a message after mine is completed so you can see what I have done with mine.

  8. Ya just gotta love those authentic styrofoam pieces! It looks great, I would have bought it, too.

  9. That is great! I don't think you can do it much cheaper than that! Thanks for linking up to We Can Do It Cheaper @ The Virginia House

  10. That looks great. Isn't it awesome what a little paint can do?

    Thank you for participating in the Creative Therapy Session at Life in the Pitts

  11. I totally love it! The shutters are pretty enough on their own, so if you have a door that needs some sprucing up, I think it would be ok to move it there. :)
