Love Or Hate,

This morning I am working on a few things that may be controversial, they are either totally love or totally hate.  Being in the Antiquing/Shantying up things business I love not doing everything exactly the same, I for one could not paint white all day it would get boring I like to add different touches and try different techniques,

Another thing that I am working on are two deer heads my husband purchased yesterday.  I know there are some that hate taxidermy and for those people I apologize if you are offended.  We hunt and fish and camp and it just does not bother me, that is how we were raised and it is a way of life. I love the look of Rachel's prairie and the animals hanging in between chandeliers and in the Antique Malls/Decor magazines it is all the rage. These are being found and repurposed.

Here are a few pics tell me Love or Hate??

I had so much fun doing this piece!

I used three colors, whitewashing, sanding, staining
This will truly be a love or hate type piece!

  1. Love, I was raised the same way. My husband used to be a taxidermist.

  2. I like just the antliers for decorating and crafting. But I wa s raised in Northern California and I never new anyone who hunted, it's that hippie thing. I am embracing all things Texas and I would like to learn to shoot. I am still learning to enjoy my friends hand raised chickens in her recipies. Funny how we are so biased by where we are raised.
