Notice how the leading kind of disappears into the background? That has always bugged the mother.
So she decided to do something about it. She bought this little bottle of gold leaf stuff at Michael's the other day. I had no idea what her plans were for it at the time. That's the thing about the mother, you can never be completely sure just what she'll get up to next!
No foiling, which was something I had always thought was an essential part of the leafing process, so I was quite surprised. You just brush this stuff on like regular paint.
She says it goes on easy. And I was impressed with how quickly it dried. What do you think of the end result?
At first, I wasn't real sure about it. (That's often the case. I'm weird like that.) But the minute she put this gold wreath on the door, the color seemed to leap out. I was instantly sold.
She's pleased with the final product-- and anxious to do the other side. That's going to have to wait, however, until the temp goes up a bit.
