New Ideas

I just came home from convention on Sunday, and I'm finally catching up!  I got so many great ideas and learned some new techniques that I am anxious to use - want to see some?  I'm adding one or two pictures to this post, but the rest of the new stuff can be seen in my faux gallery, which is linked here.  This year I made several new friends from around the country, met three new fantastic teachers, and learned a dozen new finishes to put in homes and places of business.  I have that renewed excitement and the high from being creative!

Cabinetry magic

Here are photos of the cabinets I refinished in April.  The client's oak cabinets were in great shape, but there was just too much oak in the open kitchen/family dining area, and she wanted an updated, old world look.  I especially love the blue island as an accent!  Feel free to visit my faux gallery, linked to the right, to see more photos.

Small touches

I was finally able to get to a previous client's home to take pictures of the large wall, column, and niche that I fauxed over a month ago.  The large wall is beautiful, but difficult to photograph because of the glass block windows that glare in the picture.  The niche and column, however, photographed well, so I thought I'd share a picture.

Here is my latest distraction....Sophia, the newest member of our household.  She's spunky, soft, and sweet, and we can't wait until she begins to look like a real Great Dane.  I was broken hearted to lose my dear Bella at only 4 1/2, but couldn't live without another of these wonderful family she's here!
