this week

been pretty busy this week. 

painting a mantle + built-in's during the day, and working on a hand-painted table commission by night.

also, while i was painting the mantle and built-in's, my client asked me to paint the flowers on her console to take them from the "pastel" palette to a darker one that would fit her home better. somehow it was really gratifying to paint on top of a beautiful piece of furniture :) kind of like drawing on a wall when you're a kid, no?

here is the before:

and here is the after (she directed me to paint the flowers to match the burgundy and orange flowers on the centerpiece that is sitting on top of the console):

aaaand, here is the table that i am making over:

super-excited about the cute carved out details on the drawer. this piece is actually done now! stay tuned later...i will post the "after" shot.

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
