Speaking of putting gesso on the neckties, I put gesso on custom swag and
"jabot" window treatments in my home and then painted them to match my new
decor. They look great (you have to see to believe) and I can repaint any
time I want.
Keep these gesso ideas coming! I am going to do this one for sure. I am
changing 95% of my home decor. My husband bought our house without me seeing
it and I hate it. It is grey outside, inside and not even a good grey. An
ugly drab elephant grey. It was bringing me DOWN until I painted the kitchen
floor like Mexican tile. I also painted a fake rug in the middle. The dogs
think its real & lay on it. Next I hand painted paperbag (by the role), tore
it into chuncks, wrinkled them, hung them & glazed them onto the guest
bathroom wall. Then I laid multicolored stained glass half marbles on the
sink top and down into the sink basin, & grouted them. Everybody loves it
especially generation X! I am turning lemons into lemonaid. My goal is to
change the whole house with the smallest amount of money and using
imagination. I want it to be different & something nobody else has or has
seen. I will do the master bedroom next. Any ideas out there?
