Painting Furniture

Last summer my neighbor was replacing old boards in his fence.  I asked him if I could have a couple for a project I planned on doing.  Well that project was a painted sign and those boards are still unpainted.  But I think I may be motivated again after seeing this blog.  I found her from Get Your Craft On.  She is a master at painting signs or placing cool lettering on top of a table.  I think you’ll agree.

She found this at an auction and already knew what she was going to do with it!  Shazam!!!  I love it. painted furniture That top is amazing!   She gets a lot of her graphics from Karen (I just met her!) from the Graphics Fairy.

I fell in love with these too!  A perfect teacher gift for male and female!  I think these would also make for some great neighbor gifts, but if you’re a neighbor of mine, don’t get any ideas.  You’re getting pretzels. :) Love her take on this “old fashioned” sign.  Looks pretty authentic. Besides signs, she also take the brush to other things in her home.  She’s like me…… wood shall remain unpainted!  Her kitchen is a really nice color and you can see how she painted the island black. I am totally in love with these shelves and black board.  My wheels are turning for my office.  I’m sure my husband will love that.

I hope you’ll head over and visit Three Mango Seeds and see what else she’s been up too.  So many great ideas!
