Nearly finished wth this portrait. A little attention to her palm-tree ponytail and a couple of other things, and I will wrap it up.

Coffee Table

I came by a coffee table that I thought I could revive with the color red.

Then I thought it would be cute to do a little accent, a pussy willow stencil. When I was done, it had less charm than when it lay on the curb where I found it. 

So I started over. I mixed an aquamarine hue from colors I found in my stash and set out to make the table "Beachy".  Better.

Friday's Pieces: Violet Nightstand with Pajama Stripe

I have been working on a series of painted furniture that I am calling Friday's Pieces.  My sister Mary  turned me on to painting furniture over the 2013 holidays and I am loving the creative process!  Mary uses and recommends Annie Sloan Chalk paint, so I have been working with that quite a bit.
Pretty in Paint!
