Carpaint on flea market finds

img_1371

I am a lucky girl, you see, my father paints cars. He has done that his whole life. When I was a little girl he used to repaint my furniture almost every year. Sometimes a color to fit the season: red for Christmas and yellow for spring….

I bought the stuff you see above at a flea market. They look kind of nice in the photo,  but they were not. The paint was falling off and the figurines, well they were just plain dull. So I took them to see my dad for some fresh paint. And since I love pink, that is what I wanted. See how lovely they turned out below.

    [...] I really wish I would have taken a good “before picture” of this cabinet, but instead I only took one of it laying in the back of our car. Doesn’t tell you that much, but it had been in a garage its whole life (30 years maybe?)  and it sure looked that way. We found it in an internet ad and drove it straight to dad´s car-paint-shop.
