Flea Market Friends in Need of a Makeover

Ok, these flea market finds are in OBVIOUS need of a makeover! (Oh, are you laughing at me for buying these?!? Just wait! They have potential!)

I am planning on painting over all of the orangy color with black. And his instrument will probably be a dark brown. The tree obviously needs help, too. But I might leave him as-is.

These two ladies need a makeover, too. I thought about painting them a solid creamy color. Or solid black. Just to have the effect of a silhouette.
What do you think? What would you do with these pieces? I'd love to hear your ideas.

(Tomorrow I am posting my 100th post! I will show you the collection of items you can win in my give-away. Remember - every comment between now and my drawing gives you another chance to win.)

Shannon, I'd be real tempted to paint them all white and then go over them with a distressed finish. I like your ideas...just sounds like too much work for Miss Lazy!

Shannon, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a sweet comment on my aunt and mom's new blog. It really will mean a lot to them I am sure.

I had to add you to my reader on my blog, you have a great blog...after my own heart! What fun to find new blogs that have so many fun things to see!
