Patterns, Stencils and Chevron - Oh my!

As an artist I find I only need a paint brush.  It doesn't matter if I'm painting on a canvas or a dresser. I'm having so much fun!

Here are a few of my favorites.

Patterned book shelf
Chevron TV cabinet
Stenciled desk
Pretty in pink

Scrap wood turned chevron art with metal swordfish

Mid century credenza gone wild
Gorgeous antique chest of drawers

Two-toned mid century cabinet
Sage high boy

Gray ombre with arrows

I've also strengthened my arms because I'm sanding and stripping plenty of dresser tops.

Behold, the butcher block top!




I loved working on this vintage bar.
A two-toned armoire.

And my favorite . . . (drum roll please)!
This is a vintage French radio cabinet.

It was huge!

I took out the speakers and added a little barnwood.
The finished piece literally took my breath away.
The metal and glass door handles I purchased at Hobby Lobby.

This starving artist is happy!
