I had found a few old bottles around the farm and as much as I tried they still would not come clean. On the weekend I decided I would paint them and distress them a little. Well, the painting got done but not the distressing! I am very impatient and as soon as I had slapped the paint on (yes, I was going for a vintage look!) I wanted to use them on a table, hence then heading ‘Wet paint’. I felt they needed a little something on them so they weren’t quite so plain so I found some of my old earrings from the 70’s and took the backs off and glued them to the bottles before I painted them. As you will see, I had to place the bottles on a white platter to stop the paint from getting on my dining table!! Ah, the things we do! I see in one of the photos the gremlins have been and shifted a fork a little! How come I don’t see these things until I look back at the photos?
Hi, my name is suzy and I live on a farm in Western Australia with my husband. We have two daughters and one son. This year we have been blessed with the arrival of our first grandson. I work at our local school two days per week and I help my husband run our farm.
