Commit your works to the Lord,
And your thoughts will be established.
I always ask the Lord to help me when I start painting a piece of furniture. After all, he is the "Master Artist". He will give me a visual of what I my finished product is going to look like.
I had every intention of starting my blog over a year ago. Painting a piece of furniture and then blogging about it. Well as it turned out, I painted a lot of furniture, took pictures, but never blogged about it. So, I decided to do one post with lots of pictures of things I painted this summer.
We bought this old chest. It had a mirror but the frame for it was broken. I took the mirror off, painted it and sold it separately. We painted this turquoise and black. One of my favorite combinations I think.
My cat loves to help me when I paint and usually will get in drawers or inside dressers and sleep.
This maple hutch was actually given to me at a yard sale. I was so excited. I painted it white and then the doors a dark gray. I think one of the reasons they were giving it away is that the hardware was missing. I had these drawer pulls in a box with random hardware that I collect from estate sales and yard sales. One of the doors was off too, but it went right back on.
Ice cream parlor chairs. I covered the seats in a bleached drop cloth from Lowes and then used my favorite bird stencil on the seats.
This was my first attempt at painting something "Florentine". I really like it and have an idea to do one hot pink and gold. I just need to find the right style of furniture first.
This was a maple cart. The ends flip up.
Graphic fairy Paris transfer. I painted an antique ball and claw piano stool. I had to do some minor repairs to the legs but it turned out nice. It is hard to see in the picture. Here is the link for graphics:
I bought this oops paint at Lowes. It is the perfect shade of vintage green.

A man’s heart plans his way,But the Lord directs his steps.
I have "plans" to try to post everything that I paint as soon as it is finished and not wait so long. I can't wait to show you what I painted today!
