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.

Light Green Dresser

Ah, I'm so glad summer is here.
 I love the warmer weather
(as long as I have my shade umbrella)
and long nights.

Living in the north means that at 10:30
 at night the sun is still up
and you can still be out playing. 

In fact I don't think the kids have gone to bed before
10:30 since school ended. 
 
With the return of warm weather, means the return of furniture hunting and painting.
 
I found this beauty
 I know, she looks rough and I
 almost forgot to take a before.
  (I think is just adds to the magic of the transformation.)

 
 
And now it's beautiful.
 

My husband did not "appreciate" the hardware,
but I love them. 

That's what made this piece.
The lady who bought it said that the unique drawer pulls are what sold it for her.


I couldn't agree more.
I love finding things like these.

 So well made.

 Solid wood.

 Nothing could be better.
