OK, I must stop bidding on Syroco items now. I had never even heard of “Syroco” until about 2 weeks ago, but apparently Syroco = awesome (but potentially very tacky).
That paint just had to go. Glossy orange spray paint to the rescue! It looks so much better in a solid color – much more modern.
Er, in full disclosure… I had a bit of a mishap with the painting. Eager to get started, I decided to lay out a tarp on my front porch last night and get to work. Wind carries, lesson learned. The porch needs to be repainted, but we weren’t planning on doing so right away. Now we have an orangish porch with a big rectangle outline where the tarp was. Oops!
My second treasure (just won, hours ago):
$10 for all four! I kind of like the bronzy color of them, so I don’t know if I’ll repaint. I need to see them in person to decide. I’m quite fond of them. My husband? Not so much.
Also, I have these en route from day-lab:
I don’t think they’re by Syroco, but they’re similar, no? I must be stopped! No more carved wall hangings!
