Happy Friday!  I mentioned here that I would do a tutorial on how I created this but you know how it goes....kids...potty training....kids....monsters...sick kids.....sick Mr.A2B...sick me...ya know.  So, here's what we had....Thanks to my Dad's GREAT FIND!!  Yes...he found this in the woods...
The spot is the spray paint...Heirloom White...My FAV!  I almost forgot to take a pic.  WHEW!  Take this guy, add one coat of primer, two coats of HW....and we get....


This...Mr. Fancy Pants.



I picked up a wood plaque from Hobby to the Lobby with a coupon and it was under 7$.  I busted out the ASCP in Arles and French Linen. I finished him up after a little distressing with light wax.  Then the issue of attaching Mr. Fancy Pants to his "clothes"...yep some floral wire and picture hanging thingamajiggs!  True. Story. Here he is...in all of his Pottery Barn Glory!  Of course, it was during Christmas....


And Neeked...(now..."undressed" for the holidays)...
