NEW GRANITE IN VERONICA'S TWO NICHES

NEW GRANITE IN VERONICA'S TWO NICHES

A couple of posts ago, I showed you my "antique copper" special finish that I painted on


I mentioned that they were going to add granite to the niches.
Well, the decorator sent pictures to me and I think the new granite looks great!
Remember the  niches are metallic copper paint and they reflect in the light of Veronica's beautiful wrought iron double front doors.



Here is a picture of one of the double wrought iron doors.
I might not ever get to see it in person,
 but I know those black/dark bronze touches are just stunning.
So glad she sent the pictures of the new granite.

PAINTING A HUGE CANVAS TO COVER A HEADBOARD

PAINTING A HUGE CANVAS TO COVER A HEADBOARD

This is a link to a past project that I thought some of my friends might be interested to see.
My client showed me a photograph and asked me to paint something similar on a huge canvas.
She wanted to cover her headboard with it.


She and her handyman stapled this huge canvas onto a large piece of plywood.
This canvas cloth was very inexpensive.  I think you could paint just about anything on it for a headboard or wall hanging.  You could paint castles, ABC's, handprints, a panda bear, ANYTHING!! and it would be so cute or cool.  Big squares or big triangles and stars.  Stripes.


To read more about it, here is a link to

BUSY, BUSY, BUSY MARKING THINGS OFF OF MY LIST

BUSY, BUSY, BUSY MARKING THINGS OFF OF MY LIST

I have so many things to do that I'm confused.
A long time ago, I heard a lady say that maybe you can't do everything at once, but you can to something.  So, I'm going to focus and finish one important thing on my desk.  I know I will feel like I've accomplished something and that's a really good feeling for me.  I'll mark that off of my list and get to the next project.  Hope you have a productive day, too.
