Frenchic Furniture Paint

With Cath battling Cancer and me recovering from surgery, we weren't able to get much work done the past six months.  To compensate, I sold odds and ends of stuff we had in our loft along with a few truck loads of unpainted  furniture, work tables, misc frames... to make ends meet.  My heart is still not in it and the depression has me frozen in a zone I can't seem to escape.  I physically find it hard to move.  I'm pulling away from everyone which I know is not healthy but it's all I can do right now to just be.  I'm not sure my heart will ever be back into my work but I have to get out of this funk and at least try to start painting again.

my favorite paint brushes 2 Purdy 2 inch angled brush, Frenchic oval, round wax

A while back I asked for opinions on color combinations for this piece and I'm thrilled with all the votes that came rolling in. Before Picture We offered different color combos to choose from ~ you voted and we painted it.

I'll never forget the sparkle in my dad's eyes when he'd open one of my handmade cards.  It meant so much to him that his little girl took the time to create something from the heart.  He told me time and time again how they were far better than any other gift that could be...

Cathy and I always look forward to seeing the transformations that come out of our furniture painting workshops and September was no exception.  While I missed most of the before pictures, I caught most in the process.  Some pieces that were brought in were larger than the limit so those...
