Bud's a new man!

I started this post three days ago and my hard drive died...I am back in business thanks to my son Nick. Luckily I was able to salvage the most important things but did loose the rest.

I have been busy getting my display props ready for my first show of the season.  I had purchased this vintage store display I call "Bud" about a month ago. You may remember him from this post. Well Bud finally got his makeover.

 I started with decoupaging vintage sheet music to his fiberglass form,

and then put a white wash of acrylic paint all over the paper. Thanks so much Renate for that suggestion. I am very pleased with the simple look.

Although Bud is still a little "manly" I think he will work great displaying my long necklaces. 

Prior to the demise of my hard drive I posted about a giveaway I am having. I am extending the giveaway until Tuesday May 24th. Y'all still have plenty of time to enter to win these fabulous antique mother of pearl buttons.

Hop on over HERE to enter!


  1. I think you did a great job on "Bud". :D Love the necklace.
    Sorry about your computer problems. I am computer illiterate and when anything goes wrong, I almost panic.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Judith, you made a fantastic transformation! That whitewash is fabulous...just love all of that mixed media stuff that is still somewhat of a mystery to me (although Mod Podge is a familiar classic). Good luck getting ready for your show!

  3. Bud turned out wonderfully and will display your necklaces with aplomb!

  4. Bud looks great, good luck on your first show of the season!

  5. This is a wonderful way to display your necklaces. Bud is very handsome and the whitewash over the music is brilliantly subtle. Wonderful weekend to you...

  6. you did it so well!! now it's perfect withe with little music.. so cool!
