DIY Hall Of Fame

by Sherry
Welcome to the DIY Hall Of Fame.
If you missed the first post of the series you can still
see it HERE.
Many of you know and love the very gifted lady featured today.
Rosemary is the author of the blog Villabarnes and she is one very
talented and creative lady.  Rosemary takes ordinary decorative items
and turns them into masterpieces with decorative painting techniques.
It is my honor to include her in the DIY Hall Of Fame.
Here is just a taste of her remarkable talent….
Creative bottles.
Nail head trim
Old world paint technique
Another beautiful paint technique
Adding dimension
Rosemary sells her creations at antique shows and by appointment.
To see more of her DIY projects visit Villabarnes or if interested
 in purchasing see her Etsy shop.
Thanks for visiting and don’t forget my GIVEAWAY that ends on
June 14th.

Sherry, I'm beyond honored to be included in your DIY Hall Of Fame. When I started blogging last year, I never dreamed so many talented, creative, and gracious people such as yourself would acknowledge me. I'm truly touched.

I love Rosemary, and she's so generous with her tips on how to do things. Great pick!

Rosemary does some incredible stuff with her found castoffs. Hopefully, next thing I am Illinois, I can get to Kane Country flea to see it all first hand. 🙂 And she so graciously shares her techniques with us.

I love Rosemary's blog and am waiting for her to put those mercury glass bottles in her Etsy. I moved to WordPress and am slowly figuring things out. Come visit me if you have time…I don't think I'm updating in readers or blog rolls so I'm hoping my friends will find me. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Rosemary is an incredible talented lady….and beautiful on the inside and out….I guess all the beauty she creates comes from her inner beauty!

Rosemary is a real favorite of mine too! She is so generous to show us how she transforms "finds" into treasures. She is very deserving of this honor.
