Working hard!

Yesterday I painted from sun up to sun down. Well maybe I’m exaggerating a little *wink*. I did paint from the time that I got myself out of bed. We were suppose to be moving into my new retail space but the weather wasn’t cooperating and my husband and I had already moved furniture in the rain once this month so we thought that was enough.

I got out my paintbrush and went to town! I painted many items, used some new techniques and finally saw the finish line with a few of my pieces. I don’t know about you but it seems like I can sometimes get discouraged when I’m at the in between stage. Not just with painting, with most projects. When I catch a glimpse of what the furniture will turn out to be and it looks like what I have in my mind’s eye my excitement gets the better of me and I push through to the finish line. Here are just a few of the tables I painted. I did both of them using my new “tarnished” finish. I love the finish!

I’d love for you to visit my space at The Antique Gallery now that we’ve been able to move a few pieces in. My booth is L8. It’s such a fun place. It’s one of those places that you never know what you will find. That’s so hard to say that today with everything being in a mall or a mega store.

Finally finished project!

So on June 15, I made this post on Facebook

It’s a before picture of this cute cabinet with shutter doors and wrought iron details that I picked up. I was so excited to find it, I felt like I found a treasure. Not only that but I could pick it up without dear hubby’s help. I put a picture on Facebook to give me motivation to get started. I love to paint and love coming up with the ideas for my projects but for some reason I had the hardest time putting into action what I had in my thoughts for this piece. Every piece I create is unique, one of a kind but I’d been hunting for something with shutter doors for so long I wanted this to be special.

This piece was a trial and error piece. I would paint a coat, wait a few days, paint a different coat, wait for inspiration to hit and FINALLY I was headed in the right direction. Here is the finished product. Hope you like it as much as I do! Drop me a comment and let me know what you do when you have creative block!
