I might have told you that I needed to work on this chair. It's an old teacher's chair (or it could have been a young teacher's old chair...). After painting it black, I obviously painted a little primitive scene on it. The one I showed you a couple posts ago sold and I needed something similar to put in its spot.
If we have an item that has "sat" in either of the shops for any amount of time, we always shuffle it around. Strange, how certain items will sell in one shop but not the other and vice-versa. Anyway, we've had a couple bread boxes that have done nothing but sit. I showed you one last week. Remember? The one that revealed artwork when I started sanding it?
And this is what it looks like now. Yep, I forgot to take the "before" pic again, but I'm sure you can picture this box without the flowers on it.
I took these pix, by the way, as these things were on their way out the back door and into my van so I feel lucky that I even remembered to photograph them.
Warning: Here comes another candleholder. Remember, I told you that I love making these?
Here's more proof that I do! This one is a little different in that I fastened an old dessert bowl to the top so it can hold candles, jewelry, or even candy. My neighbor asked me if it was a centerpiece. Hmmm. I guess it could be.
And, last but not least, here's an ironing board that can't be finished until the blue paint dries. I won't tell you what the remaining scene(s) will be, but will tell you that the color that goes on top of this blue is white. By the way, this old wood ironing board has been for sale for about two months so it's getting a new look.
Before I run off, I want to thank Margo for featuring me as Artist of the Week on her website. Now, this gal is a fantastic trash-to-treasure artist and I want to be just like her when I grow up. Here's her website: http://www.robomargo.com/trash.html If you haven't already been there, be sure you visit!
Off I go, but let me first tell you that I do appreciate your visit! Thanks for stopping by!
