The Finished Cherubs!

Good Morning!

I wanted to thank everyone who took the time to read my post about my painting dilemma and also to each one of you who left me a comment. I read every single one (more than once) and after considering all of your ideas and opinions, I chose to paint the cherubs and the chair. I felt the creamy paint would go best with my decor so that's what I did! I'm so happy with the way they turned out and now know that I made the right decision. Thank you all so much for your input. I really appreciate it very much!!

I really liked the idea of adding a plant too so for now I have added some ivy that I had. Eventually though, I'd love to put some drippy moss in there.

I will be completing the chair today so I will post it tomorrow.

Thanks again and have a blessed day everyone!
xo,
Kathleen

Splendid! They almost look like alabaster...

Good decision, I struggle with knowing when to paint and when to keep things "as is" all the time. What kind of paint did you use? My last attempt to paint over "gold leaf" failed as the paint did not adhere well. Can't wait to see the chair!

I love the choice of antique white. Very pretty.

Also, I just want to THANK YOU for such a wonderfully inspiring blog. Everytime I visit you, I am inspired to try and make my little place beneath a Southern sky more beautiful.

And while I'm here visiting your special place, I see that I am on your blog roll. I am so honored! Thank you so very much.

I just wanted to leave a comment and let you know that I found your blog today and I think it is fabulous. We have very simular decorating styles in our homes. It's funny, I have the same cloches and our vignettes are very simular as well. Have a beautiful day and I hope you will stop by my blog sometime. Take Care.

It turned out soooo good! I'm so glad you decided to paint it. Love it! Dripping moss would add a more french look too.

Hi Kathleen! We are birds of a feather, of sorts! I have the same two cherubs that are pictured. I painted, distressed, and added a plant to the one, also. Yours are beautiful! I have placed my cherubs on a very high ledge in my master bath along with other cherubs on the wall and shelving. They make me smile. Where are you placing yours?

Berlin Deluxxe said...

They look oh so perfect, you did a marvelous job :)
