Paint or Not

I have had these two beautiful (plaster)? roses for some time now. Packed away in a box.  I could never decide to paint them or not.  They are kind of a really really pale peachy pink now..  What would you do to them.. Leave them as is, or paint them.. If you would paint them, would you paint the roses and also the leaves? Leaves green i mean... I think they would really pop if they were painted , but i have no clue what to do with them. They are heavy and  they have a hanger wire on the back.  Just want other opinions.

It's hard to paint something that is already pretty but...my vote is to paint them. I imagine they could be outstanding.
Good Luck,

Oh my! They are so pretty just the way they are! Maybe paint one but not the other. ♥

They are pretty, but I think I would want them to really pop out in a brighter color or maybe you could start by painting the leaves a green and see what that does to it before painting the roses themselves. I just wanted you to know we had snow and blowing snow, but most of it shows to the south and east of where we are located. Our daughter and son-in-law are in Rogers, Arkansas. You Take care.

They are wonderful. I am going to have the same question. I just bought something plaster, nice but maybe TOO shabby. I will watch and see what advise you get. xo Joan@anythinggoeshere
