The piece sold last week. The person who purchased it owns a salon and I think it'll look fabulous in her shop (if I do say so myself). I love when people fall in love with my stuff. It's a high for me :)
This actually is one of my favorite pieces. We found it at the flea market one saturday, during one of our regular trips, and I knew I had to have it. We paid $10 for it, which I thought was a great deal, and I took it home and started painting it the very next day. When I get a piece I like to sleep on it before I just dive in and paint. Usually, my best designs, come to me in the middle of the night. Way to many sleepless nights for me. I keep a book by the side of the bed just to write down my ideas just so I can go to sleep :) Anyway....this piece is one of those "I can't sleep because I have a great idea" kind of pieces. I decided to use this color palette
I thought it might be cool to show some before and after pictures of furniture that I have given a face lift to. I must admitt I have a bad addiction. I love to go out on garbage night and look for pieces of furniture that people have put to the curb. I know...my kids cringe when I tell them it's garbage night! But I can't help myself. I have a shed full of disgaurded, tossed away and forgotten pieces, that I can't wait to get my hands on. I love to see the final project in my head, the possibilities that each piece could have. Most times my greatest ideas come to me in the middle of the night when I can't sleep. I keep a notebook by the side of my bed to write them down, otherwise I would never get back to sleep. Okay, so either I am certifiable or my artisitic sense has kicked into high gear. I'd like to think it's a little bit of both!
