Chalkboards Cards

 
I bought a box of 40
blank chalkboard cards
 from Michaels
and
with my bistro chalk marker
have been having way too much fun.
 


 
I love having cards done ahead of time
 so that I'm not rushed when I need them.
 

 
Can't forget the thank you
 and get well
 cards too.

Chevron, Jack and some Ombre

 
Who knew that when I mentioned on one of my
 posts that you could hire me to paint you a
Union Jack
 that someone would take me up on it.
 
 
A nice couple phoned me and we discussed
4 pieces of furniture
that they were interested in for their home.
 
I found the pieces on kijiji
that had
the modern lines
that they were looking for and bought them
 (they were all in really good condition, not something I get to buy very often)
 
The first thing I did was
a cute chevron pattern
 on these
two bedside tables.
 
Before.
 
 
 
 After
 
 
 
A long Union Jack dresser in grey on this long one.
 
Before
 

 
 After
( I love how this one turned out)
 
 
and the last one was a tall dresser done in an ombre
 
Before
 
 

 
After
 
 
It was so fun to do these and I am so
 happy that they
travelled well to their home.

Summer Chalkboard

My friend bought a
 frame for her mother's birthday
 and wanted some cute quotes and sayings
  that she could change
out as the seasons change.
 
This is the summer one.
 
 
 
We've a had a great summer so far and life has been so good.
 
 Everything from
reunions
parades
Logan's Pass
two lakes
excellent live shows
water skiing
party island
glow in the dark dodge ball
root beer chugging contests
and the list goes on
and on
 and on.
