i really hope i haven’t built up my painting skills or projects by showing you pictures of me painting and telling you i was painting.
like i said i’ve painted about six signs and my little kitchen table. i’ll show you a couple signs today and my little table. i show you the rest throughout the week and maybe into next week.
so, first my kitchen table. i found it at my favorite antique shop. the top used to look like this.
which, from this picture, doesn’t look too bad. but it wasn’t good. there was a bunch of deep scratches. the coloring was really poor. it didn’t match my kitchen. etc.
the whole thing got several (like six coats!) of white paint. i kept the legs the original deep burgundy color. love that.
then i painted on the word ‘eat.’
the top of this table used to drive me bananas. ba-freakin-nanas. not anymore. i love it!
the first sign is my grocery sign, which if you follow me on twitter, you’ll remember i tweeted about wanting to make one of these a couple weeks ago.
well, i did it!
and i adore it!
this sign is mine to keep. the rest of my signs will end up in my gift shoppe for sale. if i get enough interest i may put some in my etsy shoppe. (which is currently sad and empty) think i should?
the finishing touch to my dining room. don’t ya think?
and this final sign (for today) i just love.
and for those of you who watch the office you’ll know where i got this idea.
dwight kills me. (as you may know from my office facebook status references) ha-freakin-larious. he owns a beet farm. his last name is schrute. hence, schrute farms.
and i just love the little beet graphic! (i acutally may end up keeping this one too.)
so what do you think? love them? hate them?
more to come! and at some point i’ll show you a couple tips for making these signs.
