Sharing some of my latest panting work!

I recently did a job for a "Bed & Breakfast" in Hume Va.  It was a small part of a big job but I loved it and really liked how the final product came out!  A designer Friend hired me for this job.  She was very specific with what she wanted on these cabinets matching some fabric that she had used in the room.

I started with the flat area of the cabinet and hand painted a molding.  It matched the fabric I was given.

This is a closer picture.  I did a total of 3 of these.

The three together.  Now time to add the center artwork.

The main fabric used in the room

Fabric to duplicate

This is one side cabinet I painted & antiqued

This is what the three cabinets look like together! The center cabinet is the logo for the B &B.

The other side front.

This is the entire unit put together at the Bed & Breakfast.

The marble top really brings it all together.

another view.

I want to stay here for a couple of days!  Amazing place.  So relaxing!  :)
The Designer has such a gift for putting fabric together.  I love everything she does!

Hello Fall! We are ready to sell!

We are just about ready to sell some great stuff! It feels like we have been collecting & working forever! This summer went by too quickly so it was decided to have a Fall show.
I love Fall.  Everything about the fall makes me happy!  The colors are amazing and inspirational.

Steph and I did one last shopping trip last weekend.  Just couldn't resist the opportunity.  Hoping that you like it as much as we do.  Below are some cool things encountered...some purchased and some just admired.

Our Big sale will be on the 15th of October -thru the 17th.  I hope you can come and visit us.  Bring some friends!  We are looking forward to seeing you!

Everyone needs a Disco Ball.

Bundled old books.  

I always fall in love with something French.

Old "pretty" books for the collectors.

There were so many amazing hand made iron tables and lights.

This was an awesome booth.  Someone made lights out of old Crab pots.

One of my favorite booths.

Love the nail heads on this Wing Back chair!

A little of everything in here.

Thought this was so sweet.

Ok, not everyone's thing, but anyone that knows me, knows I was going nuts for the Santos!

Magnet boards.  So fun!

Bingo ball magnets!  Love them!

I will try to be a lttle better with the blogging.  At least a couple a week.
We will give you sneak peaks throughout the weeks before the show on finished pieces.
Have a great day!
Denise & Steph
