Candy Wrappers

I began candy wrapping when Ashley was graduating. I bought the program to make favors with her picture on the wrappers. These are great for showers, weddings, birthday parties, etc. These wrappers are for a baptism.

Cross Craze

Last year Lisa and I caught the cross craze from Canton! These crosses were everywhere in Canton and we bought lots of unfinished ones to paint. We went wild making these and sold them at the Holiday sale at the country club.

Dr. Seuss is the theme for this chair. A teacher is using it in her classroom.

This birthday banner is made of canvas and can hold up to 10 birthday candles with velcro. The other 9 candles are secured to the back with a velcro strip.

Painted Ceiling Tiles

Painted Canvas

Thursday, March 13, 2008

These are cheese boxes! Shirley wanted me to paint them for her grandkids for Valentine's Day. This is the Carley I painted the ladybug lamp for.

I painted these nightstands for a customer in Centerville. She told me she purchased several pieces for $100. One of the drawers had a training union lesson book from the early 70's from a baptist church! (Training Union is what we used to call Sunday night church) The nightstands were for her sons' rooms.

Turning something old into something new

This chair had about 7 coats of paint that needed to be removed before it was painted again. The table had a formica wood grain top that I sanded and primed. The customer wanted a table that would match the wall art she bought in Canton.

I painted this chair for Sonja to go in her classroom. It is a nice, big, comfortable rocker.

I painted this table top for another teacher who was getting her room ready for her first year to teach.
This table was made for my grandparents in the early eighties. It is solid pine and had just a polyurethane coating on it. My brother inherited it and I painted it a western theme for their screen in back porch.

Baby Stuff

I just took this old bed and sanded it to rough it up a bit and then painted the ends.

This rocking chair was the mom's when she was a little girl. The two matching pieces were a surprise for a baby shower. The baby's dad is an avid duck hunter, that is why the saying is on the bench.
This lamp was purchased at the Dollar Store! It was a pewter color, but Carly's nursery was done in ladybugs, so Grammie wanted a ladybug lamp.

It all started with a High Chair

It all started with a good friend asking me to paint a high chair for her grandbaby. I had never painted furniture before, so I was a bit nervous. Well, it turned out pretty good and it led to others.
