Dress You Up

"You got style, that's what all the girls say." Madonna was big when I was in middle school. This song came to mind just as I began to write this post.
I literally picked up this lady on my lunch hour. I drove a mile down the road and met a lady in the parking lot of a gas station to seal the deal. I admit when I do parking lot deals I feel a bit sketchy. I threw her into the back of my station wagon and headed back to work in time to scarf down my lunch.
I like the size of this piece. It is small, solid wood, and it is light weight. It sat like this for a few days in the garage. Great place to store my paint.

I painted it with Sherwin William's March Winds (I finally ran out of it, but ended up buying another quart because I love it that much).
It sat for a week before I could decide what to do with it. Do a chevorn pattern? A diamond? Put a bird on it? Orange accents? Silver? The possibilities were endless. In the end I decided to attempt a vintage music theme for this piece. Here she is:

She is for sale if you are interested!
