Well, both my boss and coworker are sick this week, as so many others are also. It's some type of respiratory virus, apparently, and I've told them to PLEASE stay home ... and not share the germs. So I'm working a full schedule this week, that doesn't leave time for artfulness in my "free time," ... so I'm "creating" during my working hours instead! We have several pieces of outdoor furniture around the shop, that haven't sold "as is," so I'm "recreating them," with new paint finishes. The above photo is a bar stool that was previously painted solid with a burgundy shade. I love the zebra print top here!
I'm using paint that my boss and I had on hand, trying not to purchase any new colors (gawd, that's so hard!). This chair is almost complete, except for the arms. I'm thinking I will do the zebra print on them, so it will coordinate with the bar stool. We'll see what results!
I hope these pieces are adding a bit of color to the front of the shop. Since it is supposed to rain today, I may work on completing the gourd birdhouse seen hanging from the awning here. It may get a zebra print too, ;). I love animal prints, can you tell?
Hoping each of you are well, and free from sickness, and enjoying your week! Happy creating to each of you!
I love finding nostalgic beauty in the smallest of things, and using it to create something unique. While my current creative passion is mixed media, I have experience with quilting, painting, jewelry-making, and a form of faux stained glass on unique objects.
After many years of working in various office settings, I now have the privilege of working at a very unique gift, garden & design shop that provides unique inspiration for much of my work.
My family consists of my DH and two labrador retrievers, all whom provide me with unique experiences and much love.
