So I have been pretty busy, which explains why I haven’t posted lately. So here are some highlights of what I have been up too!
My client brought me this wonky poorly painted grey table. She hated the scrolls on it, as it made it look to Asian for her tastes. And frankly the color just did not work in her home!
I removed the scrolls and reinforced the table. I then sanded and removed all the paint brush hairs the previous painter left behind…so gross! Since the scrolls were structural I had to replace them with something…so I had my client pick up 4 black Shelf Brackets for $6 each and attached them to the table in place of the scrolls.
She went from Shabby Chic to Classy Black in just a matter of days! I can’t wait to see a pic of it decorated!
I thought I would share some Happy Baby pics, because really who doesn’t love a Happy Baby? Harrison is a big giggler and all around silly boy, just like his Daddy! He is 2.5 months old now and growing like a weed!
2nd project wasn’t really a paint project so to speak. My client/hair stylist asked me to fix some structural issues on this dresser and replace the hardware. Since the original hardware was painted in place, I had to remove and wood putty, sand, repaint, and antique the drawer fronts before adding the new(old) hardware she picked from my stash.
From Blah to WOW! In just a few short days! I oiled the top to give it a richer finish as well. The inside of the drawers were fixed and painted a soft cream to give them a clean finished look!
Doesn’t she look great! Perfect for a Salon named Vintage Hair Boutique!
On another note…how cute is my Simon Barker? I can honestly say I have never loved a dog so much in all my life! He is such a joy to me…even when he is a pain in the butt!
For my friends birthday I thought I would get on the paper rose bandwagon! This was a one time trip, let me tell you! After creating this fun little project I promptly got off the paper rose bandwagon…never to return!
For this project I grabbed an old cabinet door and added some stain around the edges. I then adhered a plaque with a fun quote to the front of the door! I love how it turned out!
Using the same quote I created a PVPP sign…This one took a few weeks to complete because I had to cut each little piece out of the paint with my exact-o knife! Fun! NOT!
And now for another cute, happy baby pic! I love this little man so much!
I have been busy creating paper banners for a client who’s son graduated ROTC as well as the University of Washington this year!
ROTC Grad Banner
U of W Banner…one of my favorites!
Another client brought me 2 old unfinished windows. The first one I removed the screws on the brackets(I think these were doors to a cabinet at one time and the brackets were on the inside for decorations. I painted it white, and added decorative nail heads to the screw holes… I then applied vinyl to the glass.
The 2nd one I removed the brackets for a cleaner look and painted it black. I added the quote in white vinyl.
Another Banner I just designed. This is the computer rendering of the design...
Here is the banner actually done…I love how it turned out!
After all that hard work…my amazing client and friend gave us the use of her lake home for a week! So the Hubby and I took Simon Barker only and had the most amazing vacation! We stayed at Badger Lake which is the bluest, clearest, warmest, lake I have ever been too! I loved it there…so don’t be surprised when I move there! It’s amazing! Simon Barker loved it too!
Well that was the wrap up of 2 months worth of work…now onto a summer full of projects! Stay tuned!
