Field of Flowers

I had hit the road yesterday to do a little Junking.  Family friends place was hit by a tornado last week and tore apart their old family smoke house and tool shed.  Lots of old wood for the taking.  Was sad seeing their family ranch all in shambles.  That tornado danced around and totally missed the house!!!!!

On the way home, I had to stop and take this picture of this field of flowers.  Just beautiful!!

Custom Order Rabbit Stool

Painted another stool today.  This one was a custom order for a little girl who is going to show her rabbits in a county fair.  Needs the stool to make her taller in the show ring.  Rabbits will be on a table taller than she is.  hahaha

Teacher Shingle

Was called the other day to do a "teacher"shingle".  You know, a name plate for a teacher to go outside her door.  Problem was trying to find the right shingle.  Looked deep in the barn and all my collections and found this skinny cabinet door panel.  Just perfect!!! 

She teaches in elementary and wanted apples....just sanded down board, drew up and painted with acrylic.  Just need to spray with sealer, but having rainy weather today.

Pretty cool looking..don't ya think?

Painted Little Girl Chair

Finished painting the chair today!!!!!  I could really paint it fast, but it takes me too long to think about how I'm going to paint each spindle or leg.  So much fun to watch the creation come to life!
Painting a little girl's stool next.

New Projects

I have several custom orders to do.
1. Old window screen with barn, tractor, cotton field and chickens
2. High Chair
3. Stool with rabbits
4. Wine screen
5. Teacher shingle for classroom door

Plus a few extra projects I want to paint.

Just a kid's chair that I will paint pretty.
The high chair I am working on.
Old rocking chair.  Might not be sturdy enough for using as chair.  Might turn it into a planter.
Old bench.  I do have the top that I will add some beautiful coordinating fabric to.  Can't wait on this one!

Scanning through a magazine today.  Snapped a few pictures of some wonderful decorating ideas I want to put in my house.  I'm sure you will agree.
Another amazing use for old windows.  Picture frames!  I have several extra 6 pane windows that I believe I will do this with.
