It's Chippy Paint Fridays!!

Welcome to the 10th segment of Chippy Paint Fridays! I'm so happy your here and I hope you enjoy your visit.

This is the beginning stages of building a vignette around an old chippy paint corbel that my mom bought for me on my birthday a few years ago. Up until this point, I've had it in my master bathroom with a big chunky candle sitting on top, dreaming of the day when I would have enough time to take a nice long bubble bath, with the lights turned down low, sipping a glass of wine as I watch the light flicker from the candle glow. No time for a bubble bath in three years so it was time to take the corbel outta the bathroom and create something different around it.

After playing around with different items, I decided on this as a vignette.

I'm loving this look, how bout you? An old millinery hat is perched on top with a vintage strand of pearls. A few old make up compacts, a rhinestone clock and an embellished bottle completes the look. All of these items adds a feminine touch to the big chunky, chippy paint corbel.

A few close ups so you can appreciate the beauty of the chippy paint.:))

Here's another look

Crackly, peely, chippy paint!

The corbel looked like this (but was in the bathroom) and with a little imagination and with some pretty neat vintage items, it now serves as the back drop for a feminine vignette.

Simply elegant!

What do you have that's chippy paint?

Make it a great day, Janice

Love the corbel, Janice! The vignette is sooo feminine and soft looking...I love that look! Each little piece, especially the old compacts, make it rich looking...I see those old compacts at antique stores...I'll have to buy one and see what I can do with it!

Have a wonderful Chippy Paint Friday!
