Thrifty Thursdays – Covered bench makeover

I absolutely love to find solid wood furniture that just needs a little pick me up.  This looked great in the room it was in but my daughter wanted it for her Paris, hip themed room. So some black paint and funky zebra fabric and viola! Beautiful and new feeling.  Enjoy!

For this one we unscrewed the top from the base. Painted the base with primer then black paint.  Using heavy duty staples I stapled the new fabric to the underside of the top.  Picturing the top as a clock, staple at 12 o’clock, then 6, then 3, then 9.  Then fill in the spaces between. Making sure to pull taught and even.  Screw back on the base and your set.

VolleyBall and Football original Artwork September special

Hello Volleyball and Football fans!  Do you have a child or grandchild who plays either of these sports? Great gift or use to decorate an office or family room.

Here are the details:

Sale is for 3 weeks. Due to the success of this years earlier art sales I’ve limited this art sale to only 20 of each sport. The special starts today Sept 13th and will end at 11:59pm on Sunday, Sept 29 or when the 20 originals are sold.  I am able to offer these super low prices because I will wait until the end of the 2 weeks and I will complete all paintings at the same time. This saves me tons of time on setup, cleanup, etc and I’m able to pass along those time savings to you in dollar savings.  All paintings will ship by October 8th.   All paintings are done on wrapped canvas (this means that you don’t see any staples on the sids of the canvas), the sides are painted black so the artwork is ready to hang up or you can frame if you’d like.  All paintings come with hanging hardware attached.  All artwork is signed by me, the artist.
