The Mustard Seed

I have been helping my dear friends Juli and Gail at The Mustard Seed. I painted and turned this piano piece into an awesome sign for above the handmade soap. The picture doesn't do it justice. There is carved detail around the bottom but the picture is just too dark to see it.
Remember these? Well she hung them off of her awesome ladder system behind the register.
The sign is mobile as they took it to the show they recently did. Look in the right hand corner you can see it.
If you are ever in Little Falls, The Mustard Seed is the place to stop! They have wonderful things!

All work and no play...

I transformed this basic wood desk into something that I wouldn't mind working on. (sorry forgot the before picture, I am so out of it without my camera)
Two little birdies are a sweet surprise on the side.

Window Art

I have been trying to use up some of my window stash. (I think I may have a problem I can't pass up a free window, LOL)
This time I pained on burlap it fits perfectly with this chippy frame!

Sure wish I had one, then MAYBE I could find my before picture. Remember the dresser/secretary I picked up off the curb? I know I still can't believe someone threw this away! The mirror finally got re attached and a fresh coat of paint. I am so pleased with the way it turned out!

Remember the estate sale I spoke about before? I picked up this dresser there too. We had to carry it down two flights of stairs and boy was it heavy. Obviously in need of a fresh look too.
Here is the after...gone are the stickers and shelf liner paper on the top. Fresh paint and a new lease on life!
