A Cottage Style Footstool

I just finished this footstool today and thought I would post it here. Just to be different, I painted clover on the top of it. Not much else I can say about it, except I hope it sells.

A Round Table

Here Val, is my latest creation. I had a real difficult time getting a picture of this table. Even the one I show here isn't very good ... the table isn't as squat as it appears here. The green is pretty close to the right color and so is the pink/red of the flowers. The table didn't take that long to make . . . the hard part was working out the pattern. I made the pattern from a picture I saw of the table. It took some finagling to get the dimensions to come out right, but I think it came out OK.

A Knotmaker's Table

I made this table in about an hour and it took a full day to finish. There are about 8 steps to getting the finish to look this way. I was trying an experiment in making new stuff look old, and kind of had to make up the process as I went along. I took the table up to the Co op this morning and put it out for sale. It was originally called a Lacemaker's Table, but I don't like that name much and have decided to call it a Knotmaker's Table.

A Wall Cabinet that is Antiqued

I made this cabinet yesterday
and antiqued it to make it look
old. It is a wall cabinet you
hang on the wall and put stuff in. I still have to put a coat of poly on it to finish it. I am going to try it at the Co op and see if people buy this type of thing. If they do, I can do more antiqued stuff, and if they don't, well, I will have to make other stuff.

Just Figured out How to Post Drawings!!

I finally figured out how to put artwork on my blog! I added some stuff to the heading at the top and I added this drawing of a money bag at the left. It is no big thing to a computer whiz like my daughter, but it is a start!!!

A Real Nice Chair Order!!!!

Here is a picture of my most recent order for chairs. The lady ordered two chairs, two footstools and a table. It took me about 4 days to pull the order together. My wonderful sister painted all the pieces here and did a real nice job!!

I charged the lady a small fee to deliver the set as she lived quite a distance from my house and I had to haul the load in two loads as it all wouldn't fit in my van.

I'd like to get an order like this every week!!
