So this, this is my haven. The one place that I can do as I please...I mean really, really do exactly as I please. So dear hubby, I did not mean to sound mean when I told you I could paint over paint that was still wet if that's what I felt like doing. (Wow, that did sound bratty!) It's just that I really could, because I will not be bound by rules. It turned out great in the end, but if it hadn't, that would have been fine too. (There was a small issue between hubby and I and appropriate paint drying times. I'm happy to report that the man is a saint and all is right with the world)
So this week I worked on something different. I made this:
I liked the way it turned out. I did use stencils, which was fine for my first try at a sign. Then I did something really crazy. I sort of did a free hand piece. Here is a peek at it.
This is a table I'm working on for my daughter. It used to be brown. She wanted me to do the chairs with a fabric that had strawberries on it, but I couldn't find anything that I liked, so I bought a striped fabric instead, but I wanted to add strawberries to the set somewhere.
I have to say, I'm really thrilled! I drew the big strawberry on butcher paper and then cut it out and used it to stencil it to the table. I did the leaves, vines and small strawberries free-hand. Whew! Stay tuned because I'm almost finished with the chairs and then I'll reveal the entire set. Happy Friday!
