New stuff from Old things

Recently we started painting to update our humble dwelling.  We are going from Americana to more muted shades of patina blue, brick red and mustard gold.  Changing the colors up means all the little embellishments need some updating.  I got ready with some scrapbook paper and Mod Podge...


          




I first covered the old pieces with a quick coat of off white paint then got to work covering up the old stripes and stars with new paper.








Finally the finished products hanging from the shelf pegs....



The wall color looks very blue in these pictures but it is more like the patina on old copper.  It sure was more fun to make something old into something new...plus it was very easy with Mod Podge!
