|the title from my newest painting :)|
and how I love to bring things home. I have found many things over the years
a barn door that i fell in love with. i just couldn't pass up the wonderful paint- there is no way to recreate the cracks and the character!
a office chair that had cracking upholstery. the neighbor that was moving just gave it to me.... FREE! I have since re-covered it but my family was shaking their heads as i wheeled it very very noisily down the street home :)
this is my latest find! I am in LOVE. hubby didn't even roll his eyes on this one!
i don't have a pic, but one day i took the dog for a walk and found a barbecue someone had set out on the street. I left with the dog on a leash and came home with the dog and a barbeque!
so anyway, back to our craigslist friend. he had a business that went capoot and asked us if we neeeded any doors. after paroosing his stuff (both my hubby and i wishing we had major cash) we left with 2 hollow doors.
these are not the doors, but the repurposed side effects. hubby cut them down with his table saw and filled the edges, i am now the very very happy owner of 5 new canvases! this is just from one of the doors :) they don't warp, i can add as many layers as i want, and of course, the cost can't be beat! I have already covered 2, now 3 to go! hubby needs to make some time to work on door number 2! :)
these new canvases are amazing.... they are 1 1/2 inches deep and i am lovin what it does!
the sun comes in my studio in the mornings! i feel so blessed.
happy creating everyone.
