Lace Screen Re-Do

Vanity project on hold due to weather......
(a lot of work is done outside)
So I went to plan "B"
I have so many projects I want to do I have a list a mile long...
This screen wanted a make over and it was second on my list of to do's....
I put gold foil on the panels about 35 yrs ago...
what was I thinking....
(as you can see it is very wet outside...
and my cyclamen are still blooming)
this side I kept plain.....
it was still in good shape after 40 yrs.

My hubby took the panels out
and I primed and painted the screen....

added some lace and a wood applique....

and here you have it......my new lace screen....
Just in time for Christmas Eve.....
Happy Holidays.
Hugs,
Mo :-)

It so beautiful! Don't be too hard on yourself about the gold foil, I can look back within the decade and say "What was I thinking?!"
Anyway, the divider looks fabulous! My mom saw your blog and she said it was endless eye candy! I definitely agree!

Hello my sweet friend. What would Christmas be if I didn't visit one of my favorite blog friends?!! It was like opening a pretty package seeing what you have done. Your screen turned out just beautiful. I think I can see something like that in the Shabby Old House can't you...hmmmmm you have given me inspiration as always.
Enjoy your Christmas day. Merry Chrismas

Your screen is beautiful now that you've revamped it. I love making things over, it's so rewarding to take a "piece of junk" or an "ugly duckling" and make it over into a beautiful treasure. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
