Subway dresser #3

 And here we go again -


 a lot of these letters had to be touched up because ( and this is the first time this has happened to me )
 when I took the stickers off I was left with this

I had to use an artist brush ( because I am an artist - not - lol ) and fix it all up - but it came out not too shabby, right?

I'd love to keep this - the colors go perfectly in my living room - but would have to get rid of something else and I've already listed it for sale - but if it doesn't go it can definitely stay at home for a little while.

Is there a house big enough out there where I could just keep all the treasures I find????????

  7. Okay, you have convinced me to try subway art. I think I can overcome the little things. I have been worried about using the sticky letters and how they came off. Now you have let me know. Thanks - followed over from Nifty Thrifty.
