Glittered Croquet Set
I was commissioned to make a custom croquet set for a wedding coming up. The weddings color scheme is Lilly Pulitzer.
|Here's what the set looked like before I started to paint it.|
|I couple coats of spray paint later.|
|Here's a vintage set getting ready to paint. The white set is our family's personal set. It was how this whole thing got started.|
|I set up a little production line on the ottoman. I made the biggest mess.|
|The handles drying.|
|A project like this takes F O R E V E R|
I asked the bride to send me some photos so I could get a sense of the colors they wanted. I mixed up special glitter blends so they'd be perfect.
I learned the hard way, never glitter plastic croquet balls. The glitter will peel right off. Theses balls are vintage wood ones I bought on Ebay.
My daughter styled this one. Sweet!
