Junk in the Trunk Project

I found Emily at a yard sale. She and her Sister Elizabeth, yes I named them, were 50 cents each.They were a  little dusty and plain yet I couldn't resist. I found paint at another yard sale so I spent Monday night painting . I wanted to give Emily an antique look. I found a cork in my craft box to use as a "look like it has chips"method. I take a regular cork from a wine bottle, before the paint dries ,rub the cork on the spots I want to create the "chipped" look. Bacially wiping away the paint.   

Here Emily sits with Elizabeth my next project. I ran out of daylight so she'll sit plain for another week.  

Emily looks like she went to a tanning booth next to Elizabeth -maybe she can make a cameo on Jersey Shores?

Wonderful... They look like very well educated young ladies... The names are just perfect for them! And you did a fabulous job "antiquy-ing" Emily!
By the way, I'm your new follower (I had tried already a month ago and had done something wrong, as I received nothing, but now "you" arrive in my email box!!!)
