Today's Crafty Things

I spent hours and hours and hours making about 80 fabric rosettes and I used them all up today on my frames, signs and such.

I sold my personal  LOVE sign I made for myself so I made a few more to sell

I made some of these picture holders for presents at Christmas, and made more to sell, and added more embellishments to them to make them a little different than the first ones.

I also made a bunch of these signs to sell separately  but forgot to take pictures of them, but here is one that I linked together.

Shabby Chic Signs

These are some fun little decorative signs I created to sell.  They are about 13" long and 7" tall,  light weight, and are ready to hang.
I can do custom signs, pick your size and color and saying.

End Table

~~Is it just another ugly end table or a table waiting to become a beauty?

Since my last blue end table was such a huge hit and sold right away I decided to do another just like it.

Mahogany Kidney Shaped Desk

This mahogany desk is a real beauty, and has so much potential. The pictures do not show it very well, but the varnish is in bad shape and it really needs a lot of TLC to bring it back to it's former glory. My plan is to do the same thing I did to the petite tallboy, but I am not sure what color to do.

Yes another blue piece, but just wait I have big plans!!!

It is hard to see, but I drew what I wanted on here with a white charcoal pencil. I decided what I wanted to draw and then I free handed until I was satisfied.

No Stencils here!

Now for side number 2

Clear wax is now on, it makes the paint look richer and deeper.

Now I need to stain  and wax the top.

Drawers are lightly stained to make them a little richer and darker, and they are ready for clear wax.

It's done!
