No. 11 {well traveled}

We are pretty stoked about No 11…..not only did he turn out better than we DREAMED, but he was SO much fun to create!

Take a look…

He started out with some pretty bad scratches and broken hardware…but with a little repair…

No. 12 {before}

…he is the PERFECT shade of turquoise now…

BUT that is not all folks….we experimented with paper for the first time and IT WAS AWESOME…
This was an old oversized calendar I bought in Italy in 2003…here is the process of us fitting it to the top…

No. 12 {process}

as you can see, the calendar had amazing images and had been stashed away for years until FINALLY we found its destiny…

It will be SO hard to let this one go, but he is up on etsy looking for a home as perfect as he is…

Happy Wednesday.

  • GAH!!!! LOVE, LOVE LOVE!!!! The calendar is an amazing addition. Great job team Torrence.

    Amazing. How did you apply the pages of the calendar? Did you glue them on and then put clear varnish or glass over them?

    • Thanks! Castlesb- I used modge podge then several coats of poly on top with a light sanding in between each coat. It took a while, but it made for a super smooth finish!
