Shabby Chic Altered Pedestal Frame (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

    I had found this great shaped pedestal frame at Hobby Lobby, on sale with a price of about $6. I loved the scalloped edge at the top and it had enough landscape to add some beautiful Reneabouquets product and turn it into a home décor masterpiece! My thought was to have an inspirational quote as the centerpiece to my design and I think I was able to find something that would do! LOL. So, this piece originally had another wood element glued on top, and I was able to pry that off and then I painted the piece (front and back) with Prima Heavy Black Gesso, using a pounce brush and heat setting into between coats to get a subtle, yet great texture. After this was complete, I traced the main shape onto a few pieces of coordinating colors of paper and cardstock. Each piece of paper was about 1/8 inch smaller than the prior sheet so that all my colors peeked through.  On two sheets, that were going to be my top sheets, I cut a horizontal slit about 3 inches deep on the right side. Then I used a sewing machine stitch around the perimeter of all my papers and even guided that stitch around where I cut horizontally into the paper. After the sewing was complete, I distressed the edges with my Prima distress tool.   Now, going back to the two sheets I cut the slit into...I wet that part of the paper with water from a spray bottle, curled the edges inward with a paintbrush handle and then used a heat tool to set the curl. I thought this would give some great looking, fancy, texture! this gives you a background into the start of the project...from there, tons of Reneabouquets product, as well as some from my own stash, were layered and set into place and.....the pièce de résistance is complete! Here are the pictures...followed by the You Tube video which shows the entire process, and then the links to all the fabulous Reneabouquets products that were used in the project!
