It all started with...

It all started with, use what you have...


I had some paints... interior and exterior house paints, stains, spray paints, samples, primer and acrylics.  



First, it was the child size Adirondack chair that I use for decoration up front.  The green was all off!  If it was more of a minty green, I could have lived with it.  But some paint and it was transformed into something I really love!!



Next, I did this adult size chair.  I was looking for color and white was too boring.  Love the transformation! And I didn't have to paint the whole thing...just the back and the seat.

Now I'm really getting into my palm trees and tropical looks.  I have been playing with ideas for my bedroom and really want that to be my Tropical Paradise.  So one of the rooms painted by Paintin Place in a bed n breakfast,  Morning Dove Inn, started the wheels turning.  Rather than the wall of bamboo I thought of doing, why not do my own sunset mural above my bed!?



So...that got me thinking....and then I found out that the Park I live in will be having their own little Craft Fair.  So I pulled out an 8x10 canvas board and practiced Palm Trees...so now I am thinking about doing some paintings on canvas board and some on wood for signs...for the Craft Fair!



The Christmas tree came out of something that wasn't working...



but I think I made it work!

I really had fun doing these and need to get some wood and boards to keep my hands busy while trying to quit smoking!!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and your journey!
