I didn't like the way I painted the kidney bench (see last post) so ended up painting the whole thing black. I think it looks better this way. I also painted the little white footstool that had forget-me-nots on it -- I painted it a deep red. The footstools weren't selling painted with flowers, so i am going to try just painting them solid country colors. If they sell, then that is the way I will paint them from now on. I figure that simple colors will appeal to alot more people than the flowers. I am going to take these two to the co op tomorrow and set them out and see if they sell.
