Blemish Bliss




I purchased this amazing wood panel that came off an antique chest in a little shop in downtown Glendale Az. Someone added wire to the back for hanging so I brought it home for a mere $12.99 and hung it over my big screen TV. The more and more I looked at it the more the round blemish on it’s left side bothered me. Out came the chalk paint.  

I first tried outlining the carvings but it looked terrible so I highlighted the beautiful flowers with a light brush over. Then I painted the entire piece and used sandpaper to highlight the grain. It’s hung back over my large TV to add some character without the huge round stain glaring at me. I love it!
