painting gone wrong

{submitted by Heather at Cookie Mondays}

From Heather:
Occasionally, I pick up jobs doing custom canvas art for use in the interior staging of model homes. So when I recently received a call from a designer desperate for a painting re-do, I was up for the challenge! They had previously hired someone to do some fun cartoon Nintendo Mii characters for the walls of a game room. The result: fail. Something my seven-year-old could have easily pulled off.

There is no way this guy was model home ready. The lines were shaky (shirt stripes didn't even line up), the colors were way off, and just look at that poor face! A Mii Makeover was seriously in order.

before & after:

Have you or someone you know been involved in the salvage of a handmade failure?

By the way...
Have you grabbed our shiny new button from the sidebar yet?!


  1. Nice save! (I hope next time that company comes to you first!!!)

  2. Oh my! You definitely salvaged that mess. Good job:)

  3. Hmmm....I've rescued some blog makeovers gone wrong...but I wouldn't want to name and shame. I only found this blog tonight and I've had such a laugh.....must really go get some work done though....soon....maybe.....just got a few more posts to look at yet LOL.
