I have this narrow area right beside the front door that I use for seasonal decorations. As the July decoration went up, I noticed how old and faded it looked. The red had faded out to a purple and the blue was almost non-existent. Out came the trusty pots of acrylic and the paint brushes and I have been painting a different color a day when I get home from work. The next step is the polyurethane as a final coat and then to refresh the bow. I was in one of the major hobby/craft stores the other day and noticed that burlap seems to be the big thing right now, so I might just add a burlap bow.
What do you think? Would it look all right or would it overwhelm this? Just to give you a reference, this wooden star is only 6" across.
