Harlequin Fun ~

DIY | Project Inspiration


I picked up this lovely at Goodwill for $4.99. I know, you are asking "why?"...but I saw the potential. 

I painted a little black. 

I sketched out harlequin pattern and added some white. 

I touched it up a bit and then added a little glaze to "antique" it a bit. 

I love it! I love the black and white harlequin next to the gold hardware. And it is a completely unique piece...ah, gotta love Goodwill (and a little paint)!
