After a much needed Hiatus, may I introduce the latest creation to the hand painted furniture collection.
A sweet vintage french provincial set of painted dressers dubbed:
“Oysters On The Half Shell”
Things have been quiet on the blog as of late..
but its time to break the silence.
no I haven’t dropped off the face of the earth
or given up on my blogging or creative endeavors,
I just needed to place them on the back burner the past few months.
The crisp air and the bustle of the Holiday season is upon us, what a perfect time for some easy clean up one pot cooking!
I cannot think of anything more divine than the comfort of a warm hearty meal that has been simmering on the stove all day
filling our abode with the aromas of some good ole home cooking,
and Martha Stewart’s cookbook “One Pot” is a one stop book for easy and nutritious meals to feed the family.
Last week I shared a sneak peek of a small furniture collection I was working on, using some wonderful vintage image transfers. This is the unveiling post for the Nursery Collection, with a tutorial on how to transfer images to wood painted furniture using the Omni Gel technique. Here is The debut.
Here is a sneak peek of what I have been working on in the studio.
Hello Friends, first off you may have been wondering where I have been all Summer.
At home with the kiddos of course, taking some time off and enjoying all the fruits of parenting full time.
Well its now off to school and creative time for Momma!
What a trunk painted Union Jack with American Paint?
Oh “Never Mind The Bollocks!”
What’s important here is how much I love this funky paint job.
Repurposing old things most people regard as junk into something new and useful is one of my favorite things to do,
you may have seen this great thrifty find of an old ironing board on my Instagram feed as the before shot a few weeks ago,
well here is what I did with it!
This week I’m sharing a repurposed, warped guitar transformed into this great little guitar shelf and saved from the landfill!
One day I showed my sister an adorable guitar shelf I found on Pinterest, and she begged me to make one for her boyfriend for his birthday, she just so happened to have one laying around from college that she never used. She packed it in her car and there it sat for a week before she had a chance to bring it over.
Sharing some of my own work in a post is long overdue, so I decided to deviate from the norm and post one of my own creations this week in Place of Tuesday’s Top Five Favorite Junk Finds. I Finally finished my re purposed message board charging station created from some salvaged vintage pieces. Read on to see the transformation process, before and after photos along with a featured artist whose work has added some extra bling to this fun project!
I love to use vintage optical scientific instruments in artwork, from vintage optician lenses to ocular measuring instruments.
This week I gathered up some great modern art sculptures created with optical lenses for some artistic inspiration.
