I am on high speed right now with my work. My imagination is on over drive. This always happens when I have a show on the horizon. I wish I could stay this motivated all year!
I got it in my head to re-paint a table that I had…..like I need something else to do!
This table was painted for a special order, I packed it up and shipped it to a show where the customers were supposed to pick it up and pay me for it….well they changed their mind! Lesson learned….get your money up front!
The table looked similar to this one, but not exactly:
After I attacked it with the sander and some primer this morning it looks like this:
I have a birdie design in my head……we’ll see what happens after lunch!
At the same time I am also painting another chair for the auction, “Take a Seat for Conservation”. This one is going to be pretty funky….with a mermaid….but not all painted…..can you guess what I have in mind?
Then of course, since my creative juices are flowing, I had to be a little distracted and sew some cute little bags that were in the Cloth Paper Scissors Gift 2010 issue.
The pattern is by Jennifer from Jangles.
I used the little houses from my fabric fritters for this one. Been wanting to make some of these since before Christmas and finally did it!
Okay….going to grab lunch and get back to painting!
Have a great weekend!
I thought your table looked great the way it was. I cannot imagine painting over it or sanding it down. Looking forward to seeing your new art on the table.
WOW what white paint does! Did it pain you to do that?
I just love Jennifer Jangles things, don't you?
