She made them using embroidery rings ( like this )
and I was dying to try this - although as much as I am a DIY'er - and a painter of all things, lol - I am really not so crafty, which is a whole different world unto itself - but here is my attempt - it's not nearly as cool as hers - but I was trying for a more modern look.....................
Not even sure if I like my version so much - but that's what I did last night!
It looks great! And I like your vignette with the silver frame...ReplyDelete
Thanks! I still like Lindsey's better though ha ha!ReplyDelete
How clever is that? I am SO impressed! They look like the RH orb lights. I wonder if you could rig a way to put a candle in there..... LOVE THEM!!ReplyDelete
I thought of that Stacy - but with my luck I would burn the house down!!!Delete
I think they look great! I love how you've nested the smaller one inside the bigger one. What really added the extra oomph for me was the thumbtacks, believe it or not! I know you can't see them all that great in my picture, but they really finished everything off. You could try silver ones to keep with your modern look, or even spray them black and silver and alternate the colors on your spheres. I'm so psyched you tried this! Great job Suzy!ReplyDelete
YES - you can see the thumbtacks - they make it - but didn't have any - believe me I ransacked the house looking!Delete
Hi Suzan, I love this idea! I just found your blog and love your style. I see that you have been using the Annie Slone piant and I think you are doing a wonderful job combining the colors. I am an interior designer and also write a blog. I am wondering how you like the paint and how it "feels" as you work with it. I have a small showroom and have been considering contacting the company about carrying the line here at WDWS in Ohio. Any feed back you can offer will be greatly appreciated. I have joined your site and hope that you will take a look at mine:) Thanks~PennyReplyDelete
Thanks so much Penny - I'll send you an emailDelete
oh and I will definitely be your next follower - thanks for becoming mine.
Embroidery hoops! Never would have thought! What a great idea and I love both yours & Lindsey's.ReplyDelete
