Tabletop Vignette

I'm joining in on Marty's Tabletop Tuesday and Susan's Metamorphosis Monday, thanks, ladies for hosting! Go here and here for lots more inspiration.

I'm sharing the transformation of the little lady bust I bought at Hobby Lobby a few months ago. It was on sale for $4.80.

I recently used the little bust in a tabletop vignette. (Below) This is the original color.
I didn't like the original color and knew I would paint it when I bought it,
but I tried it in this vignette first.
I like this color so much better!

The details of her face and blouse show up much nicer now.
I'm also thinking of glazing it with umber or ochre to highlight the details
but I took the pictures first in case I don't like it afterwards! (LOL!)

Inspiration for this vignette was the little girl bust. I had bought the pretty vase at Hobby Lobby when we were in Knoxville recently. The book is really a box, on sale half-price at Michael's.

The mirror is from Home Goods a few months ago, and the little bird from Michael's.

From this color:
To this:

And it was on sale for this!

Which is your favorite color?
This is mine:

It was a fun transformation . Metamorphosis!
And a great Tabletop vignette!

Have a happy day!
God Bless.

Katherine, both of your vignettes are just gorgeous. You always do the neatest things. I really like her painted white too. It does show off her pretty face better. I like both vignettes so much, it would be so hard to pick. Great inspiration. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

That is an amazing transformation, Katherine! I love it done over in this soft white. It makes it so much easier to see the details of her face & now she looks more innocent. BRAVO & well done!
