I haven’t been on my blog very much lately. Now that warm weather is here I spent as much time as possible in my yard. I love beautiful flowers so I am sure I will not be able to resist adding a few additions for my patio. I went home yesterday and did not even change clothes before cutting my grass. Then back to my painting furniture. I have been looking for a studio so I can clean out my garage. I try to be very organized, but sometimes it gets the best of me. I have several beautiful antiques that I found months ago and sometimes I have to live with a piece before deciding how I would like for it to look. The ladies at the shop jokingly tell me I am OCD because I am very particular about the way I want my finished piece of furniture to look. I have purchased many pieces of furniture that I would love to paint a very bold color but I have found out most people are not comfortable buying “bold”, so I try to always keep that in mind when I am painting it for resale. I found an antique chest and I loved it until I realized a huge piece of molding was missing from one side. Bummer!!!! Yes, it was quite the bargain, but I had to walk away. I love tools but I am a little afraid of a saw, so if it needs major repair then it is not for me. I see all over the internet where people find a dresser in 3 or 4 pieces and take it home and like magic with a little work here and there, paint and magic…..it is a beautiful piece of furniture. I truly admire these women that can do that. I can't do that but here is what I can do. Check out a few pictures of my latest work. I especially love the table and chairs with a modern flare to it and its a solid heavy set. It’s so unusual and I am all about “different”!!
