Art is magic… But how is it magic? In its metaphysical development? Or does some final transformation culminate in a magic reality? In truth, the latter is impossible without the former. If creation is not magic, the outcome cannot be magic.
I used to buy anything that was unpainted wood at thrift stores. I guess I had an idea that I would decoupage and paint all of the boxes, trays and frames and make pretty shrines (and then sell them somewhere). Oups, that didn’t happen.
I went on to other things, and life happened. I’m not sure decoupage is really my thing… Though now I have a pile of stuff left, in a box somewhere. When I found this tiny chest of drawers (when organizing stuff around) I decided it was kind of neat, but in need of a coat of magic white paint. I decided it was craft time!
White paint is king when it comes to furniture renewal, even tiny furniture like this chest of drawers. White paint does magic to any furniture project, and I’ve transformed various projects before, like a tray, a huge frame (that I made into a inspiration board), a letter holder and a shelf and a chair! White paint, easy and beautiful. Plus, looks great in any space/room.
This is the finished result photographed on my big painted paper, which made this photo extra delicious:
What will you transform and beautify in the world this week?
