Doll bed

My granddaughter wanted a doll bed for her babies (American Girl dolls).  A friend offered an old used dog bed to repurpose.  I used white appliance spray paint, and accented it with two shades of pink acrylic paint.  I got the fabrics from JoAnn's and made her a matching pillow.  I gave it to her for her birthday and she was thrilled.  This was a lot of fun to make!

The pool man used the wrong chemicals and discolored this fountain.  The pool company hired me to restore it.  I used Sherwin Williams products.  It was a very hot job!

Before and After Furniture

I did these for a friend.  She was doing a tropical theme and someone gave her this furniture.  I based coated each piece in sage latex (Faux Effects setcoat), then glazed with an earth brown glaze.  I painted each panel with palm trees.  Click on pic to see palm trees close up.

60th Birthday Card
