Hand painted tiles (pics)
I don't post over here often but I wanted to show you what I worked on last week :)
My BIL and SIL bought a new house last week. SIL wanted a
Tuscan theme and got some ideas from HGTV. One of the ideas was to attach tiles to the backsplash. She was going to attempt to it the way they suggested but I told her to send me the photos of her ideas and we'd see what I could paint up. She found some photos of the olives, garlic, grapes and peppers and I went to work doing my own version. I also added two scroll designs in because wrought iron items are found often in this theme. The fleur de leis was what I THOUGHT I kept seeing but it was really the Lily of Florence and it just required some adjustments to the fleur de leis and that was done! I forgot to take a picture, though.
I also did a pear and tomato tile but I didn't take pictures :( Maybe I'll get all of them when they are up on the wall!
They had to look rustic she said so I rubbed the tiles with gel stain and speckled with brown and black paint. The pictures really don't do them justice!
