Another lil' project...

Well, once upon a time - my friend bought this very whimsical lil' rooster painting from me - ya know, polka dots and all. Well one day she decided to bring it back so I could paint her bar stools to kind of match it - she said, "make them fun". So here we go.

Her inspiration piece - an old cabinet door I painted - you know - painted whimsical - since that is the only way I know how! I promise, there is no way I could paint a rooster to look like a "real" rooster - hehe



The problem chairs - before... all white



Here they are after priming, two coats of black paint and a lil' distressing.




And once again - those funky lil' polka dot roosters - you can't help but smile when you see those quirky lil' guys.





An to finish it off - jus' like the sign says...

"Thank you God for this beautiful day."




Hope you like them Pam - enjoy!

Everybody have a splendid day - Happy Creating!

Cathy

" When I write or share something about one of my friends in a posting, I always make sure I send them a copy of it, so they know what was said about them. Today I included information about you and your blog site in my posting, so I thought I should let you know about it as well."

The above paragraph is the first paragraph in an email I sent out today, to all of the owners of blogs whom host "theme days", that I could find email addresses for. But I was unable to find an email address on your blog so that I could include you in the email. The rest of the email is what I posted today on our blog. Go to: www.xanga.com/thehousethatlovebuilt to read it for yourself.

Hopefully, it will then clarify of all of this for you ;-}

I love the bar stools, you did a very wonderful whimsical job. I may try and paint a few roosters picks to put in my flowers.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Cathy, honey you are so talented!!! I wish there was a way to purchase your items on line! Maybe if you just listed them for sale a couple times a year, on your blog, and let us all know about it!!!! Sounds good to me...;) Hope you have a great weekend! Nancy
