Edwardo the Elephant - TrEnvamp Project..Part 1

We love scouring the shops for exciting pieces that we can clean up or make over.. Either to look like it originally did or to TrEnvamp to something new, chic and totally not what you'd expect. It is with this in mind we bring to you Edwardo the Elephant! Rescued from a shelf of dust, this elephant was stuff up the back of a shelf, perhaps almost never to see the light of day ever again.. We in true TrEnvy style, always checking the backs of shelves, found this delightful Elephant.. Obviously loved with Brasso to death, it was your typical diamond in the rough find.
Cast statue elephant was chosen to come home and experience life again. So firstly it's a case of look at visible signs of neglect.. Way too much BrassoLove as previously stated, this is the obvious. The Brasso build up must have been at least 20 years+! Splatters of old Brasso had accumulated from toothbrush cleaning, on the what would be, a perfect rosewood base. Here is a snap of the newly named Edwardo the Elephant..prior to TrEnvamping.
