Paint Projects

First off, is this little number Sara made for a birthday gift for one of her artist friends. It was sold as bare wood from Hobby Lobby...
Like so:
Cute, huh? She added the hooks so she could hang her jewelry from it.
Next, we still have Wedding Stuff coming out of our ears. Lots of frames to paint cream...
These are only a few so far.



See the pitchers below?

We'll be painting MANY of these puppies cream for part of the centerpieces.
Like so:
Hope you're having a good one! : )

The scissors are adorable.

Oh my - - - covering up those beautiful pitchers with paint, ah well - - - I guess it MUST be done for the wedding centerpieces.

I have things that truly NEED to be painted and just can't bring myself to cross over tot he dark side of spray paint - - - - - - -

There's no hope for me
